Scheer Family Urges Senators to “Be Good Humans”
Rob and Reece Scheer spoke with KIRO 7 in Seattle about the urgency of enacting legislation codifying same sex marriage into law. The Scheer’s are now in the 18th year of their relationship, have been married since it was legalized in D.C. in 2010, and have adopted 5 children from the foster care system.
Along with the Supreme Court’s decision this year overturning Roe v. Wade, Justice Thomas signaled that same sex marriage protections might also be at risk. In response, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill protecting the right to same sex marriage. It currently awaits a vote in the U.S. Senate, where it will need the support of all 50 Democrats, as well as at least 10 Republicans.
Any threat to same sex marriage is a threat to the Scheer family, and they do not take that lightly. The Scheer’s have the following message to senators: “People are going to look at themselves in the mirror the day of the vote and they’re going to realize that either we break up all these families, because that is what could happen, or they can do the right thing, which is be good humans,” said Scheer.
