-Lawsuit to Force Catholic Hospitals to Perform Abortions Dismissed

by Dr. D ~ April 12th, 2016


An ACLU lawsuit to force Catholic hospitals to perform abortions has been dismissed this week by a Federal District court. From Townhall:

A federal court has dismissed the case American Civil Liberties Union v. Trinity Health Corporation, which sought to force Catholic hospitals and staff members to perform abortions regardless of their religious beliefs or personal objections to the procedure.

The suit was filed by the ACLU in October of 2015. Trinity Health is one of the largest Catholic hospital systems in the country.

Response: It is great to see this effort by the ACLU fail. We posted about this case last October when the lawsuit was initiated. It would have been a huge infringement on religious liberty. Which is ironic considering that the ACLU organization is supposed to be all about supporting civil liberties in America. But lately they have been involved in numerous cases where religious freedom was compromised or suspended in favor of other ‘rights’ as it would have been in this case.

As I stated in my article last year: “The Catholic Church looks upon their institutions as part of their religious mission and ministry. To force Catholic hospitals to do abortions and sterilizations would be oppressive. The Bill of Rights and the First Amendment in particular were written in the first place to protect citizens and the church from government oppression. But times are changing and our rights are under assault.”  Fortunately the ACLU failed in this case.                *Top

    I find it fascinating that the ACLU has been at the forefront of the fight against slave labor See, for example, the following article:


    However, the ACLU does not bat an eyelash at forcing a doctor to perform an abortion? What hypocrisy!
