Hospital Visitation Rights extended to Gay Couples

I’ll say one thing for Obama, he has quite a pair.

The dust hasn’t settled yet from the Health Care Reform battles and he heaves another log into the fire by issuing an executive order instructing his Health and Human Services secretary to draft rules requiring hospitals that receive Medicare and Medicaid payments to grant all patients the right to designate people they want granted the same visitation rights that spouses and immediate family members have today.

The order specifically includes gay couples.

Well Halleluiah it’s about time.

I can’t wait to hear the reaction from the Christian fundy crowd on this one. Let them yell. It’s the right thing to do and every decent human being knows that.
