Italy hospital drops 'father' bracelets for lesbian parents (ANSA) - Padua, January 2 - The maternity ward at the Padua Hospital in northeastern Italy has stopped issuing bracelets that read 'father' in favor of ones that read 'partner' in order to accomodate lesbian parents. According to local media, the change was put into effect after a woman last month was waiting to visit her female companion who had just given birth.
