The Corner


Look, I understand – even if I do not agree with – the notion that homosexual ‘civil unions’ represent some sort of threat to the institution of heterosexual marriage, but this veto by the governor of Maryland seems to fail the test of commonsense as well, lets say it, common decency:

“The [vetoed] legislation would have granted nearly a dozen rights to unmarried partners who register with the state. Among those: the right to be treated as an immediate family member during hospital visits, to make health care decisions for incapacitated partners and to have private visits in nursing homes.”

For heaven’s sake.
