Exactly right. However, you can bet that if this hospital were some other “faith,” the ACLU would be doing backflips to ensure that the hospital need not perform procedures in conflict with thier sincerely held beliefs. After all, even Target employees have the right not to handle bacon and pork chops at the checkout stand because it’s “against their religion.” No, this is yet another attempt to force Catholic hospitals to compromise their beliefs or risk losing Medicaid and Medicare funding (though I am not implying that this poor soul’s implant is government funded). Many Catholic hospitals have shut down their ob/gyn departments so as not to be forced to do abortions, and all are in the dilemma of what do do about emergency contraception. But if you are another religion your beliefs are not just respected, they are pandered to.

If I remember correctly, Catholic Hospitals in Canada are not even allowed to provide ANY gynecological/ childbirth services, because the law there ways you have to provide ALL services, includingabortion and surgical sterilization if requested.

You're allowed to hold the Catholic faith. You're just not allowed to practice it.

That's friendly free-world Canada. And in America? Stay tuned.
