The approval of a Domestic Partner Registry is a no-brainer. Everyone deserves equal rights. Period. By approving a Domestic Partner Registry, same-sex couples are granted these rights: 

 

 

  • to visit his or her partner in health care facilities
  • to make certain health care decisions for his or her partner
  • to make funeral and burial decisions for his or her partner
  • to be notified as a family member in case of emergency
  • to be designated his or her partner's pre-need guardian
  • to participate in the education of his or her partner's children
