Mr. Branstad: We moved back to Iowa for equality

Here’s another example of the outpouring of support for same-sex couples in Iowa. Do your part: Send your letter today!

I just recently married the love of my life one week ago here in Des Moines, Iowa. I was born in Des Moines, but have lived in New York City for the past 12 years. We have decided to move permanently to Des Moines because of the legality of same sex marriage. It offers us a comfortable environment to live openly. In the future we would like to raise our family in a place of understanding and acceptance. As two to be physicians in Osteopathic Medical School we would like to help serve the underserved community here in Des Moines and help add to the medical community by inspiring preventative medicine. My wife and I would love to continue our life in Iowa and to contribute to the community, however if the State of Iowa changes their support and legal stance on marriage equality we will have to rethink our move to this community.

Please continue to vote for marriage equality and equality for all citizens of the United States. We as citizens are entitled to that right.
