Obama scores one for the GLBT community

Executive order says hospitals that get federal money have to let gays visit their partners.

In a memo to his Health and Human Services agency, Obama ordered the secretary to ensure that all hospitals getting Medicare and Medicaid money honor all patients’ advance directives, including those designating who gets family visitation privileges.

The order also requires that documents granting power of attorney and healthcare proxies be honored, regardless of sexual orientation. The language could apply to unmarried heterosexual couples too.

If you meet a single Teabagger that opposes this, ask them why they want to infringe on freedom.
