No takebacks without an amendment to the state constitution, which is non-trivial.

The next time this could possibly come up for challenge is in 2012, and by that time it will hopefully be standard enough that the movement won't be able to gain any steam against equal marriage. ^^

Senate Republican Leader Paul McKinley, R-Chariton, nonetheless called for an immediate move to amend the constitution.

“The decision made by the Iowa Supreme Court today to allow gay marriage in Iowa is disappointing on many levels,” he said. I believe marriage should only be between one man and one woman, and I am confident the majority of Iowans want traditional marriage to be legally recognized in this state."
What the honorable senator from Chariton seems to have misunderstood is that traditional marriage is already recognized in Iowa.

Interracial marriage is also recognized.

Hopefully this is a portent of what will happen to Proposition Eight...
