Yes, same-sex couples can marry in Iowa—but a state district court heard arguments last week in a case to determine whether the child born to a married lesbian couple has the right to have the names of both her parents on her birth certificate, as do children of same-sex couples legally married (and civil unioned) in other states. (Not to mention children of opposite-sex couples in every state.) I’ve covered the story in depth for Keen News Service; hope you’ll go have a read.
