US Senate votes to protect same-sex marriage

The US Senate passed a historic bill to protect same-sex marriage, as lawmakers from both parties tried to prevent the conservative-led Supreme Court from taking away that national right, as it has done with abortion.

“With today’s bipartisan Senate passage of the Respect for Marriage Act, the United States is about to reaffirm a fundamental truth: love is love, and Americans should have the right to marry the person they love,” President Joe Biden said in a statement. after the 61-36 yes vote.

The Senate vote sends the bill back to the House of Representatives, which is expected to quickly approve it and send it to Biden for his signature.
