"No one should have been able to deny our children and [me] the ability to say goodbye to Lisa and let her know -- if only be holding her hand -- that she was so loved. That should not be a privilege in our country but a basic human right of every family regardless of how they define themselves."

--Janice Langbehn, whom Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami prohibited from seeing her partner who lay dying from a sudden brain aneurysm
