Nancy Goldstein and Wife featured in NYTimes

In a NYTimes article today, Nancy Goldstein, a reproductive justice rockstar from the National Advocates for Pregnant Women, and her wife are featured for being one of the same sex couples to be recognized by NY State for a marriage ceremony they had in Massachussets in 2004.

Unfortunately they are part of a small number of couples who are being recognized, and only because of a legal technicality. Goldstein and her partner were married before the July 2006 NY Supreme Court decision which came out against same-sex marriage. Only couples married between May 2004 and July 2006 will be recognized by NY State.

    Thanks for posting us up. I hope that the Washington Blade reporter will mention what the NYT guy didn’t. Joan and I clearly stated our belief that people’s civil and human rights should never be tied to their marital status. Everyone deserves all of the goodies that are currently, and wrongly, tied to marriage: access to healthcare, the right to name beneficiaries and designate one’s own visitors, guardian, and health care proxy, etc., etc.
