Terms “Husband – Wife” Scrubbed From Federal Law Under House Democrat Bill, Replaced with “Spouse.”

 July 18, 2023

The Supreme Court's ruling in 303 Creative LLC v. Elenis has been deemed an attack on LGBTQ+ rights. As such, new legislation proposed in the House would remove the words "husband" and "wife" from federal law and replace them with a range of terms such as "spouse."

The "Amend the Code for Marriage Equality Act," the proposed legislation, moves to substitute the words with phrases such as "a married couple," "married person" and "person who has been, but is no longer, married to’’ depending on the actual context.

Brownley shared that, "Although the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Obergefell v. Hodges that same-sex couples have the right to marry, there are many instances where the U.S. Code does not respect that constitutional right,”  Federal laws targeted for amendment in Brownley's bill, include the "Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993", the "Ethics in Government Act of 1978," and the "Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971," to name a few.

On Friday, in a statement Brownley reportedly stated-

"Now more than ever, with an extreme Supreme Court and state legislatures rolling back the rights of the LGBTQ community, it is imperative that Congress showcases its commitment to supporting equality," …"This common-sense bill will ensure that our federal code reflects the equality of all marriages by recognizing and acting upon the notion that the words in our laws have meaning and our values as a country are reflected in our laws."

-California Democrat, Julia Brownley

Another example of Democratic futility, this legislation follows the myriad of attempts by Brownley and her colleagues over years to make sure the wording representing equality – removes any semblance of male / female entities. Further, it biologically ignores the male / female differences, while attempting to scrub them from applicable bills.

Using “spouse” they desire to effectively neuter the sexes, preferring to see this legislation, as some form of completeness to their legislative prowess – until the next time when they supposedly interpret yet another word in some legislation as an attack on LGBTQ+ rights. This is what, in the midst of all the pressing issues upon this nation – that Democrats are focused on. Really? Come on Man!
