Respect for Marriage Act

The Left’s Marriage Bill Is a Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing

from Heritage Foundation,

Congressional Democrats in the House of Representatives passed a radical new bill last week called the Respect for Marriage Act. Misnomer: The name is nothing if not ironic. House Democrats pushed this bill in reaction to the overturning of Roe v. Wade, and, if passed, it would strip states of their right to define what marriage is and would even open the door for polygamy if even one state requires it. Our take: In short, it’s a publicity stunt. “Its goal? Take the spotlight off progressives’ radical policies and paint conservatives as bigots—and all this conveniently before the midterm elections,” writes Heritage research assistant Jared Eckert.
