Response to magical thyme (Reply #9)

Thu Jul 19, 2012, 01:20 PM

36. The woman speaking, Julie, is the mother of

a child of a gay couple. They live/lived in Massachusetts while rmoney was governor. There were complications w/ the birth and the child was rushed off to ICU w/ the partner following the child. When she tried to return to Julier, she was not allowed to see her partner because she was not next of kin. She was denied access to the baby for the same reason. Julie says their story was reported/covered by every form of media - article in People Magazine, local news - when they finally got an appointment to see rmoney. Julie says he had no idea who they were or why they were there to meet w/ him. She says there was a complete lack of empathy during th entire meeting. When he replied to her questions as to what she should tell her daughter, he looked past her when he answered. He couldn't even make eye contact.

I'm hoping there are DUers, who lived in Mass, during this time, who can add details.
