Mike Pence's Hateful Laws

I've read many articles and books regarding the AIDS crisis of the 80s and 90s. How hateful parents would tear couples apart just when they needed each other the most - when one was diagnosed with the then-death sentence of HIV/AIDS. It physically hurt me to read the stories of partners, who'd been together for decades, being denied access in hospitals and hospices.

We've come a long way since those days, but we still have a long road to go. Same-sex marriage (and rights) are brand new and are still being attacked to this day, regardless of the SCOTUS ruling. It wouldn't take much, a couple of super-conservative judges being appointed perhaps, to undo all that had been accomplished.

While I know Hillary has a snowball's chance in hell of having the electoral college vote her way, I do take solace that hell has already frozen over (Cubs win!), so well, maybe ....
