It is refreshing to learn that there are Catholic hospitals who are, well, Catholic. From the Chicago Tribune:
A Chicago medical center has become one of the nation’s first Roman Catholic hospitals to adopt a practice of halting second-trimester abortions for women who change their minds after the multiday medical procedure has begun.
Working with two anti-abortion groups, Resurrection Medical Center, the largest hospital of one of Chicago’s largest Catholic health care systems, has put in place a practice that when a woman arrives in the emergency room with an activist seeking to stop a second-trimester abortion, she should be treated immediately. Since October, four women have arrived at the hospital seeking to halt their abortions, and three of them had their abortions stopped.
But the following is typical of pro abortion activists:
While Wolowicki and other staff at Resurrection believe the hospital is saving lives, helping women and upholding Catholic doctrine, abortion providers worry that anti-abortion activists are pushing a woman to pursue a rare and uncharted medical procedure that heightens risks during pregnancy for both the woman and the fetus and could result in premature labor or miscarriage.
Get that? Abortion providers are concerned for the baby whose life would have been terminated if the abortion was not stopped. Read the article here.
Oh wait. It seems that there is no need for such heartfelt concern. According to this article:
