I heard this audio story on Public Radio last night. There is about 18 minutes of audio. "Rights Beyond Marriage"
EDIT: I believe that it is worth our while to spread this story/url. Please do so.
Janice Langbehn's family was on an anniversary cruise off the coast of Florida went things went terribly wrong. Her partner Lisa Pond collapsed of an aneurysm. Janice Langbehn says the hospital staff refused to allow her and their three children to see Lisa as she was dying. The hospital denies that sexual orientation had anything to do with what happened, and this was part of standard procedure at the trauma unit, where visitor access is often limited.
Janice talks with Janet Babin about what happened and why she's filed a lawsuit
