The U-S Senate is advancing bipartisan legislation that would make same-sex marriage a federal right.  Senator Amy Klobuchar says the overturning of Roe v. Wade shows that rights people take for granted can vanish with one mark of a pen:

“When a Supreme Court justice signaled that the hard-won, legal protection for marriage equality could be on the chopping block putting the legal rights of countless married couples and families in jeopardy, we felt that we had to step in.

Klobuchar told her colleagues, “we should all be able to agree that states shouldn’t be able to discriminate against people based on who they love.”  She noted that Minnesota became the 12th state to legalize marriage equality.
