When others suffer due to discrimination within our legal system, our very humanity demands that those laws be changed. Recently, this story has surfaced regarding a women’s legal battle against a hospital that denied her access to her partner as she lay dying. The suit has been brought on the grounds of emotional trauma cause by the hospitals denial.
The story itself is heartbreaking and only serves to remind us of just how unequal our country remains despite recent strides in other regards. I myself wish one day to be married, I just hope that when that day comes, my gay friends will be able to enjoy the same privileges that we already take for granted. No one should have to suffer that kind of distress, I don’t care how much you dislike their life style or what you think they “represent”.
