Maryland homo-gays getting the right to pull the plug?
Senators in Maryland have given preliminary approval to the Medical Decision Making Act, which would give homo-gay couples (and unmarried couples in general) the right to make medical choices for their partners. If passed, such happy decisions as whether to bury or cremate (or remove from a feeding tube) could be granted to homo-gay partners who register with the state health department.
Sort of annoying is the fact that in order to give the bill a fighting chance, it specifically points out that it "may not be construed to recognize, condone, or prohibit a domestic partnership, civil union, or marriage recognized in other states or jurisdictions." But hey, whatever works for now.
The Senate will decide the fate of the measure tomorrow, so hope for the best.
