Civil union law for same-sex couples takes effect in Illinois


Gov. Pat Quinn signed the historic civil unions legislation into law in January, making Illinois the seventh state, along with the District of Columbia, to give same-sex couples significant legal protections. They include the power to decide medical care for an ailing partner, the right to inherit a partner’s property, get full hospital visitation rights and be considered next of kin.


Obviously there are some that still disagree with the idea/thought of it all:


Meanwhile, an opponent of the law, the Catholic diocese in Rockford, announced last week it will end its state-funded adoption and foster-care program rather than comply with the law, which would require it to place children with gay or unmarried couples.


It should also be noted that the POTUS has declared June to be LGBT month in 2009. Illinois new law just happens to coincide.

I think it's pathetic that all 50 of the states in our great country aren't on board with this already.

2nd line!

Opinions have no place in the realm of basic human rights. I don't like Evangelicals and neither does a large number of Americans, but even if we were a majority, that does not mean we can drive them into the sea to drown.
