    It may not be an issue in a state like New Jersey, but in states like Oklahoma and Mississippi, it could be a different story.

    Thats theory not fact.

    You can't just dishonestly throw out Southern states and guess they have denied gays.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    The article in the opening case mentions a specific case in Florida when it happened. My point is, and I think anyone would agree with this, New Jersey is a pretty socially tolerant state, so just because this is not a problem there does not mean its not a problem in more socially conservative states.

    Now there's an understatement......
    I agree, NJ should not be used as a benchmark.....

    It won't stick. If this is simply Federal policy then it can be re-written if the GOP come back to power, and you know they'll do it.

    I suspect people have been denied in the past over this, but whether or not it still happens is irrelevant to the security this will bring to homosexual couples who might not be taken seriously by the health establishment. I also like what this implies for equal protection at the Federal level.

    Well founded speculation. States thats that are very socially conservative have not exactly been on the forefront of civil rights, much less same sex civil rights. Spend some time in Arkansas or Mississippi, and you will feel like a Liberal.

    Having lived in both the North East, NYC, and the South, Dallas, I have found the (how do I say this?)...The cultural discrimination against gays to be about even btwn the two areas.

    The GOP will have a really hard time explaining why they're repealing the right to visit a loved one in the hospital. If the GOP regained power and did this, they'd be right back out on their asses next election I expect.
