    Any Catholic Hospital, Organization, or Person that does not adhere to the “Catechism of the Catholic Church, Second Edition” should not commit FRAUD by calling themselves Catholic. All they need to do is change their name to Joe Schmoe Memorial, and remove all Catholic religious symbols.
    Any person seeking murder (abortion), euthanasia in some states, sterilization, and contraceptives should merely go to another hospital who specializes in these things. By the way, the article is not accurate, and one abortion is not the entire reason, I read the 4 pages including decree.

    The woman had hypertension which is treatable without abortion by Specialists. CHW also performs voluntary sterilizations, contraception counselling and distribution, and abortions. This is all included in the decree.
    By the way for future publication Catholics who do not adhere to the teachings in the “CCC 2nd Ed” are Heritics, Schismatics and/or Apostates and automatically EXCOMMUNICATE THEMSELVES by Canon Law 751 & 1364.- Each person dictates and makes his/her own decisions based upon words and actions.

  3. so you say, but why is the life of the unborn more important than the life of the mother? If the mother died, wouldn’t both the mother and child be dead?
