When the love of her life was in an urgent-care center in Farmington, Amy McClintock rushed in, only to be stonewalled at the front desk.There’s no one here by the name of Cindiman Pinneke, she was told.
It was only after McClintock called her partner’s cellphone that Pinneke was able to peek her head around the corner and invite McClintock back. “That potentially could have been a disastrous situation had Cindiman been incapacitated. That kind of discrimination is absolutely unacceptable,” said McClintock, who lives in Durango.
It’s the kind of situation a civil-unions bill that will be introduced Wednesday in the Colorado Legislature is designed to avoid.
