I'm not well-versed in the medical decisions area, though, and whether the above is superceded by "not being family."
The thing with Civil Unions is that Brown V Board of Education showed 'separate but equal' to be a bunch of crap. Which sort of sucks in this case because if everyone stopped being jackasses for about 2 seconds it makes logical sense.
