The Threatened Catholic Hospitals
In pursuit of the truth – www.cinopsbegone.come – Tuesday, July 28, 2009
In many ways the Obamacare is a teaching lesson for all Americans. The challenges we face from the Culture of Death advocates and why in educating ourselves and others we vote them out of them out of office in 2010. And we can.
The following are excerpts from Our Sunday Visitor, July 26, 2009. OSV in Focus” Part 1: Health Care – Catholic Health Scares –
“There is a deliberate effort to push the Church out of health care. They don’t like who we are and what we stand for; it’s real. I always find it ironic that politicians say we do wonderful work, and they don’t understand that the reason we do wonderful work is of what we believe. If they are going to celebrate our contribution to the common good, then they have to protect our participation consistent with our values in advancing the common good.” John Carr, executive director of the Department of Justice, Peace and Human Development of USCCB.
“Faithful physicians and health care providers – from medical students to hospitals – face significant challenges to conscientious belief and practice, as practically all Catholic teachings on respect for life are under attack, John Brehany, executive director of the “Catholic Medical Association.”
“Catholic health care is in the middle of some of the toughest debates in American life – abortion, euthanasia, and health care itself, said John Carr. “The biggest challenge is keeping faith with the mission in challenging times.”… “It’s a really a tough time with dramatic change in health care financing, very significant ethical challenges, 40 million without health coverage and immigrants who have no status. Carr said. “And yet Catholic hospitals carry out the healing ministry of Jesus in our own time in lots of places…”
“… ethical challenges are being thrown at Catholic health care from any directions: abortion rights advocates, groups such as Planned Parenthood, secularists, professional organizations and government entities at all levels.
Get Out of the Profession:
Americans United for Life (AUL) has concluded that there is an “Increasing threats to health care rights of conscience by groups and individuals who believe that health care providers who oppose abortion, contraception, and immoral uses of biotechnology should, ‘GET OUT OF THE PROFESSION.” They strategy is “clever and chilling” according to an AUL brief on the topic.
“If they can create legal precedent to compel violation of conscience for one procedure (e.g., dispensing contraceptives) or group of health care providers (e.g., pharmacists), they will have established the legal precedent necessary to compel doctors to participate in surgical abortion and to compel all health care providers to participate in other objectionable procedures and services.”
George H. Kubeck, “Let’s stop being fools for local CINO Politicians, like LORETTA SANCHEZ, who are part of the Democratic Party’s leadership - CULTURE OF DEATH.”
