WASHINGTON, July 19 (Reuters) – The U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill protecting same-sex marriage rights on Tuesday after the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade jeopardized similar precedents that set the rights to same-sex marriage. same-sex relationships and contraception.

The bill, which the Democrat-controlled chamber passed by a vote of 267-157 with the support of 47 Republicans, establishes federal protections for same-sex marriage and prohibits anyone from denying the validity of a marriage based on race or gender. the couple.

It now goes to the Senate for a vote, where it faces obscure odds in the evenly divided chamber. House Republicans were told to vote with their conscience by the party leadership, who did not lash out at the bill.

House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerrold Nadler sponsored the bill after the federal right to abortion was quashed when the Supreme Court overturned its landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling.

In a unanimous opinion, Judge Clarence Thomas said the court should also reconsider her previous 2015 rulings guaranteeing access to contraception and the right to same-sex marriage, because they relied on the same legal arguments as Roe.

Some Congressional Republicans have echoed Thomas’s arguments. Republican Senator Ted Cruz said Saturday the Supreme Court was “clearly wrong” in establishing a federal right to same-sex marriage.

Democrats have argued that Congress should enshrine the right to same-sex marriage in federal law in case the court revises its previous rulings.

“The rights and freedoms we have come to cherish will disappear in a cloud of radical ideology and questionable legal reasoning,” Nadler said in a statement Monday.

Under the House bill, states can still restrict same-sex marriage if the Supreme Court overturns its previous ruling. But such states should recognize marriages that have taken place in states where they remain legal.

The House will vote Thursday on a bill to ensure nationwide access to contraception, another right Thomas suggested the court reconsider.

Democrats hope the bills will contrast with Republicans ahead of the Nov. 8 midterm elections, in which rising inflation will challenge majority Democrats in the House and Senate.
