The ACLU’s Unholy War on Catholic Hospitals

Ho, ho, ho! Just in time for Christmas, the American Civil Liberties Union has launched a new salvo against people of faith. Even as billions around the world celebrate the birth of Christ, joyless, abortion-obsessed secularists never take a holiday.

On Wednesday, the ACLU sent a letter to federal health officials urging the government to force Catholic hospitals in the U.S. to perform abortions in violation of their core moral commitment to protecting the lives of the unborn. They’re counting on sympathetic Obama rationing czar Donald Berwick — a recess appointee whose radical views on wealth and health redistribution were never vetted by Congress — to dictate which religious principles hospital operators can and cannot follow.

The ACLU reiterated its call for a federal probe — read: fishing expedition — of Catholic hospitals nationwide that refuse to provide “emergency” contraception and abortions to women. In practice, of course, every request for abortion is an “emergency” to the left.

The Catholic Church makes clear that it is morally permissible under certain circumstances to treat directly the cause of the mother’s medical condition, even if those efforts unintentionally and indirectly cost the baby’s life. But Catholic health providers must never directly trade one life for another.

And now… the rest of the story. …..

    Talking about Christmas. While MSNBC has been serving us night after night and about all day and night on weekend for over two years, documentaries on every prison in the USA with interview with the most Famous inhabitant.
    But would you believe it that is what was on Christmas night and all day to day Christmas Day??? Can MSNBC show the world something good about the USA?? If they want to investigate mistreatment in prison that is good but over two year every night and weekends for hours. No wonder that when some Russian Jewish Mafia came to the USA and harassed Fairfax Jewish inhabitant, those cheerful Russian told a reported “but we saw it on TV in Russia this is how it is done in the US” Thank you MSNBC.
    I was so angry last night I was reduced to Fox News, that has been the only station covering the News. And It was pretty good after all. Did not have to listen to those “celebrity hosts” either they had some nice young ladies doing their best to be in tune with the Holiday. Perhaps the ACLU can look into that.
