Equal Rights

The Maryland House of Delegates backed away from steps to prohibit homosexual couples from enjoying some of the same rights as heterosexual couples last week with one Montgomery County Delegate telling her colleagues and the public that she is a lesbian.

Del. Sandy Rosenberg describes last week’s hearing on why gays and lesbians should be able to be with their partners in hospitals.

It's a challenging time for those who believe in equal rights for all, regardless of sexual orientation.
