House of Representatives plans to codify the right to same-sex marriage Tuesday

(KYMA, KECY/ NBC News) - In a crucial week of decision, the House plans to vote Tuesday to codify same-sex marriage into law.

The Democratic-controlled chamber is set to vote on the Respect for Marriage Act, which would establish legal protections for marriage between same-sex couples nationwide.

The measure is expected to pass in the House, but it's unclear if it can get through the Senate.

The vote comes as many civil rights activists fear the Supreme Court could rescind more rights after the recent overturn of Roe v Wade.
