Gay Marriage Opponents Push Ban in Iowa

Sunday, 27 Dec 2009 08:45 AM



DES MOINES, Iowa -- Opponents of Iowa's gay marriage law are promising to push hard during the 2010 legislative session for a vote on a constitutional amendment that would ban same-sex unions.

Bryan English of Iowa Family Policy Council ACTION says pro-marriage supporters plan to be at the state Capitol en masse on Jan. 12 when Gov. Chet Culver delivers his Condition of the State address to a joint session of the General Assembly with Iowa Supreme Court justices present.

He says the occasion will mark the first time that all three branches of state government are together since a unanimous Supreme Court ruled April 3 that a state law defining marriage as between one man and one woman was unconstitutional, clearing the way for same-sex marriages in Iowa.
