US President Joe Biden signs bill on same-sex marriage

| @indiablooms | 14 Dec 2022, 02:42 pm

Washington/UNI: US President Joe Biden signed a bill codifying federal protections for same-sex marriage.

The move came days after the Respect for Marriage Act went through the US Congress.

The legislation, among other things, overturns the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act while requiring states to recognize any valid marriage performed in other states.

The measure was introduced this summer after a conservative Supreme Court justice signalled that rulings on marriage equality and contraception should be reconsidered.
