“We’re Both Dad”
Health care’s LGBT blind spot
By Whitny Doyle
Considering all our nurse columnist has witnessed in her career—dramatic resuscitations and miraculous recoveries included—it’s a little funny that teaching a couple of dudes how to wipe a baby butt stands out as one of her proudest moments. But she met baby Melanie and her two dads years before "Modern Family" would air on prime time and the president would finally evolve enough to voice his support of gay marriage.

Pill bills get no love from the Legislature
By Marisa Demarco [ Thu Feb 16 2012 3:22 PM ]
The session adjourned at noon, and two measures that aimed to curb New Mexico’s high pharmy-abuse rates didn’t make it. Margaret Wright wrote an article for the Alibi about the measures. One aimed to tighten restrictions on opioid prescriptions. Another attempted to create a better tracking system for prescription misuse.
Medical associations bucked the legislation, saying it could discourage physicians from giving pain medications to people who need them.
Advocates argued the changes were needed because New Mexico leads the nation in rates of overdose deaths.
