Wisconsin Governor Calls for Domestic Partnerships

Timothy Kincaid

February 17th, 2009

In a budget address today, Gov. Jim Doyle of Wisconsin (D), called for the implementation of Domestic Partnerships:

The governor called for a domestic partner classification and offering limited legal protections for same-sex couples, such as allowing domestic partners to take family and medical leave to care for a seriously ill partner, make end-of-life decisions and add health care coverage.

Domestic partners would register with counties and they would be treated like other vital records.

How’s about ALL of the same rights instead of SOME?

Nice try, but this won’t fly.

Seperate but Equal is ANYTHING but.

Chris, equality is a process. It doesn’t happen overnight.
