Zach Wahls has described North Carolina's Amendment One as saying some families are better than others.

Wahls is the University of Iowa student who defended his two-mom family at an Iowa House hearing considering a proposed measure which would repeal the state's gay marriage law by defining marriage as a heterosexual union in the Iowa Constitution.

A video of Wahls telling lawmakers that his family isn't any different drew 18.3 million views to become the most-watched video in 2011.

Voters in North Carolina will decide on the proposed amendment, which would also ban civil unions and possibly domestic partnerships for gay couples, during the state's May 8 primary.

“This amendment … specifically singles out a single kind of relationship,” Wahls said in a video recorded for Protect All North Carolina Families, the umbrella group working to defeat the amendment.

“When we talk about the politics of fear and division, this is exactly what we're talking about with the legislature saying there are some families that are better than other families. That some families deserve more protection than other families. That some families have more worth, more value than other families. That's not the future. And that's why this constitutional amendment cannot pass in May.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
