US House passes bill protecting marriage equality

 WASHINGTON: The US House of Representatives on Tuesday passed a bill safeguarding gay marriage privileges, after the Supreme Court's choice to upset Roe versus Wade jeopardized comparable points of reference that safeguarded freedoms to same-sex relations and contraception.


The bill, which passed the Democratic-controlled chamber by a vote of 267-157 with help from 47 Republicans, lays out government insurances for gay marriage and restricts anybody from preventing the legitimacy from getting a marriage in view of the race or sex of the couple.


It will presently go to the Senate for a vote, where it faces hazy chances in the uniformly isolated chamber. House Republicans were told to cast a ballot with their heart by party initiative, who didn't whip against the bill.


House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler supported the bill after the government right to an early termination was upset when the Supreme Court struck down its milestone 1973 Roe v. Swim administering.


In an agreeing assessment, Justice Clarence Thomas said the court ought to likewise reexamine past decisions ensured admittance to contraception and the 2015 right to gay marriage, since they depended on similar lawful contentions as Roe.


A few legislative Republicans have repeated Thomas' contentions. Conservative Senator Ted Cruz said on Saturday that the high court was "obviously off-base" in laying out a government right to gay marriage.


Leftists have contended that Congress should revere the right to gay marriage into government regulation on the off chance that the court returns to its past decisions.


"The privileges and opportunities that we have come to love will evaporate into a haze of extremist belief system and questionable lawful thinking," Nadler said in a proclamation on Monday.


Under the House charge, states may as yet limit gay marriage in the event that the Supreme Court topples its earlier decision. However, such states would be expected to perceive relationships that happened in states where they stay lawful.


The House will cast a ballot Thursday on a bill to ensure cross country admittance to contraception, another right that Thomas recommended the court return to.


Leftists are trusting the bills will attract a differentiation to Republicans in front of Nov. 8 midterm decisions, in which taking off expansion challenges Democrats' larger part hang on the House and the Senate.
