Nothing To Do With It
Amendment One is a marriage amendment, not a “make decisions for all family members amendment” (“A Dangerous Aspect of Amendment One, April 22).
The reason Mrs. Bernett could make decisions during her husband’s illness is because there must have been a valid living will or power-of-attorney available. This has nothing to do with the marriage amendment and can be done for her sons no matter what happens May 8.
The amendment simply states that marriage is between one man and one woman, reinforcing what is already a law in North Carolina.
