Symbol-LambdaHere’s yet another case of a hospital ignoring the reality of a same-sex relationship in an end of life situation, even after being faxed the legal documents showing full control over medical decisions. The couple, Janice Langbehn and Lisa Pond, were getting ready to board a cruise in Miami with their adopted children when Lisa collapsed and was rushed to the hospital.

Janice then sat in the waiting room with their children, being refused any access to her partner and information on her condition for hours on end even after the hospital had the documents showing that she was designated as Lisa’s healthcare surrogate to make medical decisions in such a situation.

Still think the gay marriage ‘debate’ isn’t about legal rights? Read this piece first.
