    I heard about this story. I am no fan of the catholic church, but the nun and hospital knew the rules ahead of time. They are very clearly stated.

    They did know the rules, however, I definitely don't agree with what the church did here.

    Also, what are your thoughts on the second story in the article? Specifically, this one:

    I have to wonder whether or how that is legal.

    The catholic church and the hospital has to be sure the doctor is performing an ectopic pregnancy procedure and not an abortion.... so you may have people sticking their noses in who don't belong, which can make the doctor's job difficult.

    Catholic hospitals are private hospitals. If you don't want religion taking a hand in your health care...find a different hospital.

    Historically the mother can just die..they don't give a shit.

    Religion has no business in making medical decisions. EVER. Good for the decisions that were made to save the mother. Fuck the chruch.

    what you have to understand it that the catholic church believes at the very least that the doctor, nun, and hospital played God in that situation, which they see as blasphemy.
    The nun should not be surprised she was excommunicated.

    "Find another hospital" is an empty offer in many cases. Few patients understand these policies, and none can choose to relocate once the emergency has begun. Unless things have changed a whole lot, women choose their Ob/Gyns and deliver in whichever hospital they are affiliated with -- they dun make a heap big deal out of investigating hospitals.

    It's despicable and if the stories of rendering women infertile without cause are true, it's criminal.

    Hello? Catholic hospital. Ya got nuns and persists running around. And yes you have a long time to think about where you deliver your baby. Somewhere where the decision for life may be made without your life being taken into account or somewhere your life comes first.
