ACLU Loses Case To Force Catholic Hospital To Perform Abortions

A Michigan judge has thrown out the ACLU's lawsuit attempting to force a nationwide chain of Catholic hospitals to perform abortions.

The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, Southern Division dismissed the case, saying the liberal legal organization lacks standing to sue.

The ACLU filed suit against Trinity Health Corporation, which operates 86 health care facilities in 21 states nationwide, last October because Trinity – a Catholic institution – abides by the U.S. Bishops' Ethical and Religious Directives (ERDs), which bar physicians from taking unborn human life.

“Those who doubt that anyone would ever try to force someone to commit an abortion need only look at this case,” explained Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Matt Bowman. “This is precisely what the ACLU sought to do. The court came to the right conclusion in putting an end to their quest.” . . . Read More @ LifeSiteNews

Trying to force Catholic hospitals to do this, doesn't even make sense. Going to a Catholic hospital because it's someone's desire to have this done in a facility built by those who are completely against this....makes even less sense!
