No One Can Stop Same-Sex Marriage in US; Biden Signs Gay marriage Law

Proving himself as a champion of LGBTQ rights, America’s President Joe Biden on Tuesday signed the Respect for Marriage Act into law. To depict the importance of this new law, a grand signing in ceremony was held at the White House.

Several thousands of advocates and other attendees joined the president and congressmen to watch Biden sign the legislation that codified same-sex and interracial marriage into law in America.

“Today is a good day. A day America takes a vital step toward equality. Toward liberty and justice, not just for some, but for everyone. Everyone,” Biden said. “Toward creating a nation where decency, dignity and love are recognized and honored and protected,” tweeted the American President.

The passing of the bill is hailed as a “momentous step forward for greater justice for LGBTQ Americans.”

Since 2015, same-sex relations in the US are protected by a Supreme Court order. But after the court overturned the longstanding ruling protecting the right to abortion in June 2022, there were fears that in the future same-sex marriages may be termed illegal by the American courts.

The new law repeals previous American legislation defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman. The bill also applies to inter-racial marriages.
