For those readers who are not American I want to inform you that, yes, life partners of dying individuals were banned from hospital rooms for being gay. Whereas your homophobic birth family that you hadn’t seen in decades would be allowed to waltz right in.
Well, at some point between authorizing assassinations and distributing hand-outs to health insurance corporations, Barack Obama dimly recalled he had made certain campaign promises to the LGBT crowd. Having mostly failed on this point, at least, at very least, he has righted a despicable wrong.
LGBT Americans can now visit their dying partners in the hospital.
Wow, look at Obama taking political risks on our behalf. I should send him a card.
