    I agree. It dispels the lie that gays can't leave their **** behind to their partner or have their partner visit them in the hospital unless they are married.

    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.
    the gop will have a hard time rewriting this........

    While I agree that this isn't a bad thing, the method to make it so is... disgusting.

    Yet a man who was in another relationship with another woman and has children with that other woman does?

    So just because the religious right hates gays, we should just all respond by acting like a 5 year old and doing away with state recognized marriages entirely.
