Burial Rights

Who can vote against a bill denying any man or woman his or her right to bury his or her deceased loved one? Rhode Island's governor vetoed such a bill, and the misnamed National Organization for Marriage (which takes no position on California's divorce ban proposal while opposing gay marriage in states across the United States) urged the state's legislators to vote against the veto override effort. But Rhode Island's legislators came through, with the overwhelming majority voting to override Carcieri's veto of a burial rights bill.
