Just doing what hundreds of publically owned companies have already done because
consumers and the public preferred it. As usual the people lead and goverment
"Additionally, the change helps the company stay competitive as more Utah
employers begin extending benefits to same-sex couples, Burgess said. Those
companies include University of Utah Hospital, ARUP Laboratories, Zions Bank,
West Valley City, Salt Lake City and Salt Lake County."This is
great. The power of the purse at work.There really isn't much
justification for continuing to ignore the Full Faith and Credit clause of the
US Constitution. At least the private companies are beginning to acknowledge
this fact. State governments will catch on eventually.
DN Subscriber 2: "I will avoid giving any of my business to IHC."Given that the University of Utah hospital system also offers benefits
to same sex couples, you will have to look pretty hard to find a medical
provider that meets your criteria. Not to say they don't exist, but you
have eliminated a big chunk of the market.
Private business and their choice. Some may think it is great, but I think it
encourages immoral and destructive behavior. I will avoid giving any of my
business to IHC.
Good decision IHC.Utah -- Kicking and screaming, being dragged
into the 21st century.
Good for IHC. It's the right thing to do.
Justice Kennedy made a political correct vote undoing thousands ofYears of
precedence that marriage is a Union of a man @ a woman.
This is just so wonderful. I mean, now those wonderful gay couples can get
acceptance by the main stream...NOT!
Well done, IH! For others, step by step the pressure is mounting to do the right
thing. Which business, public service, or church will be the last to have to
admit that equality applies to all? History will remember who that last
intolerant entity was.
Bravo! I applaud this fair minded decision. Kudos to IHC.
Great news. It is good to see the march to marriage equality still continues
despite the prejudices within the state of Utah.
