I know you are not really comparing the health of women to whether or not bacon is on a menu...

ACLU Sues Catholic Hospital for Denying Abortions | Al Jazeera America

Quote:
The lawsuit aims in part to call attention to what reproductive rights advocates call Catholic hospitals’ role in an "overwhelming" attempt by social conservatives to erode the availability of reproductive health care. They cite the ongoing criticism of Planned Parenthood and a movement in many state legislatures to restrict access to abortion.

The American Civil Liberties Union filed the lawsuit Thursday in federal court in Michigan on behalf of its members against Trinity Health, a group of 86 hospitals in 21 states that has in recent years engaged in a number of mergers with other health care facilities. The complaint, obtained by Al Jazeera, alleges that Trinity hospitals have refused “appropriate emergency care to women suffering pregnancy complications, including miscarriages.”

“For many women experiencing pregnancy complications, even when the pregnancy isn’t viable, abortion is the standard of care necessary, or they can develop infections, become septic or experience hemorrhaging,” ACLU attorney Alexa Kolbi-Molinas told Al Jazeera.

Rights advocates say Trinity Health emergency rooms and physicians often send patients home instead of offering them procedures such as tubal ligations (commonly referred to as tube tying) or the removal of an unviable fetus in an ectopic pregnancy.

“Women are told, ‘There's nothing we can do for your miscarriage, go home,’ and think they are getting medical advice but in fact are getting religious advice,” said Washington state abortion rights advocate Mary Kay Barbieri. She has been collecting testimony from women who say they have experienced such treatment at Catholic hospitals.
It's about time. These hospitals take in federal dollars. They can't deny health services because of religious reasons.

I am not Catholic, I have a lot of things against Catholics, and I used to enjoy bashing Catholics from time to time, but persecutions of christians had gotten too serious for that.

But if Catholics wanna believe it's against their religion to abort babies then why in hell would you wanna try and make them do that?

you don't have to believe in religion, be Catholic, or even be against abortion yourself to see this is really, seriously stupid, nazi, thought police, bovine excrement.

If Catholic Hospitals take federal dollars then they have to obey Federal Law. If they refuse to obey federal law strip them of their non-profit status and ability to take medicare payments. Let their bean counters add that up.

This is an idiotic argument. The government could simply tax everyone 100% and then pay those back who follow federal rules that violate the bill of rights, just like this one. That way the government could enforce any rule no matter how insane it is.
