The key here is: requires the HHS regulations to guarantee hospitals honor all patients' advance directives , which include stipulations such as who should make health care decisions if the patient isn't able to do so This is a good thing not only for gays, but for all Americans. There are plently of people that do not have strong family ties, may be astranged from their family or spouses, or may come from a family that cannot be trusted to carry our their explicit wishes under such...

I agree, sunnubian. I don't understand why this type of thing has not been in force for everyone for this long! Just because someone is "family" doesn't make them good or right or automatically have your best interest at heart. To say that only family can make (good) health decisions for someone else is just archaic .... and should have been done away with ages ago. This argument between "states rights" and "federal involvement" is a slippery slope when it comes to things such as this ...

Actually in my view this should have nothing to do with the Federal or State government. A great example of how states are treading on individual liberties. @Sunnubian: your story is a great example of why black people should stop being afraid to get a will. When I got my done in Texas, I was able to add on a medical/living will to my final will. Please first thing, first make sure you have a will and modify it as needed!

Jet-set diplomacy: globe-trotting Hillary Clinton breaks travel record. 102 nations visited, 843, 839 miles flown. No wonder the tireless Secretary of State wants a break.

Those two black cops that shot that 6 year old white boy will NOT GET ONE MONTH jail, they'll be lucky if they ever see the light of day again and rightfully so. It's unfair the sentences for white and black; that's what's maddening. That shows that the laws are not written for them; not at all! They're written by them for US and only US to abide by; and we WILL abide by them by FORCE!!!

America does not want to admit just how many people in this country are mentally deranged. America does not want to admit that there are so many psychopaths, sociopaths, homicidal maniacs and sadists in America, that they can fill entire police departments with pathologically deranged sadistic masochists. [What other mentality could have tortured this mentally ill young man to death?]

It's not only South Carolina. Things like this keep happening all over this country. In this particular case, it does seem to be the medical team who are at fault, not the jail, if the jail really notified the medical team [who, by the way, are probably a private company contracted by the State]. So incompetence, biases, and gross negligence are what Americans have to look forward to in this day and age and future of Privatization of America in all facets of life, even down to detention...

this is awful. how sad for this girl and for her family. i think this incompetence can partly be blamed on how overworked doctors are. they are overpaid but also overworked. i've heard they go for unnatural amounts of time without sleeping, then are expected to do surgery with people's lives in their hands. what a terrible system.

This is why I trust the medical profession less and less. People do not have pride in their jobs anymore. I had to go off on a nurse because she didn't wanna give me information about a family member and she just saw the day before. And it was HOW she talked to me. Sooooo I got her azz and reported her behavior. She didn't think I was gonna that...but! I did. And I'm not gonna go through what I said but two days later when I went to visit...it was "we are the world" mentality on the floor.

Years ago in the city I'm from the same thing happened, a child went in for a routine tonsillectomy and bled to death while still in the hospital. My question was how could the nurses on the floor NOT know that the child was in distress in the first place.
