Obama orders most hospitals to grant gays visitation rights – latimes.com
The Obama memo is inspired in part by the case of Janice Langbehn, who was kept from seeing her partner, Lisa Pond, as she slipped into a coma. Last September a federal judge rejected Langbehn’s lawsuit against Florida’s Jackson Memorial Hospital, saying there was no law requiring the staff to grant Langbehn access to Pond’s bedside.
Why is this still an issue which causes some folks great consternation. Even if you believe homosexuality violates a commandment from God, how could anyone feel right in denying someone access to their loved ones in the hospital?
