Rep. Glenn Thompson (R-Pa.) celebrated his gay son’s wedding lower than per week after he voted against a bill that will protect his son’s right to have one.
A spokesperson for the congressman told NBC in an announcement that he and his wife were “thrilled to attend and have a good time their son’s marriage” and were “very blissful” to welcome their latest son-in-law to the family.
All Democrats and a big variety of Republicans ― 47 of 211 House GOP members ― voted in favor of the bill. It’s now within the hands of the Senate, where its fate is uncertain.
After voting against the laws, Thompson’s spokesperson told the Centre Day by day Times in Pennsylvania that the bill was “nothing greater than an election-year messaging stunt for Democrats in Congress who’ve failed to handle historic inflation and out-of-control prices at gas pumps and grocery stores.”
In his dissent within the ruling last month that overturned Roe v. Wade, Justice Clarence Thomas mentioned the Obergefell ruling as one which stood to fall by the identical reasoning the conservatives had employed to finish abortion rights.
