      This is just one example of many out there of why Civil Unions AREN”T the same as Marriage. If these two were legally married there would have been no wiggle room for the hospital and they would have been forced by law to let this couple be together during this very upsetting and emotional event….Damn bigots make me sick ! The sooner President gets re-eleceted the sooner he can push to dismantle DOMA and thus force under threat of loss of federal dollars these states that have constitutional amendments against same sex marriage to remove said amendments.

      Hospital Policy is irrelevent when it goes against the law.

      If could be hospital policy that every baby born there would be sold into slavery. Guess what, that wouldn’t be legal and therefore the policy is not only irrlelevent but can get them sued.

      SO I love these people who try to fall back on “It’s policy”.

      Things like this are what the bigots don’t want to admit. Until there is full marriage there will never be equality because you will ALWAYS have places like this hospital.

      Yet another reason why DOMA needs to be struck down and marriage equality needs to be the law of the land.

      What about the excutive order issued regarding hospitals that receive federal funding, etc.? Would’nt that trump any lack-of protection at the state level? The hospital doesn’t seem to be religion-oriented.. but I can’t imagine they don’t accept Medicare, etc.
      This screams of discrimination in the face of the excutive order which was issued to counter this kind of crap..
