ACLU = Anti Chistian Liberties

No, I am not at all surprized to read that the ACLU is at it again & going after Bishop Olmstead for upholding Catholic teaching. The ACLU has proven time & time again that it hates the Constitution & esp the 1st Amendment. The 1st freedom mentioned in it isn't speech, press, assembly or petitioning the government. it is freedom of religion. "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof". The ACLU is in favor denying people the right to freely live their religion out. But a so-called right to abortion that doesn't exist in the Constitution & was wrongly created by 7 men on the Supreme Court it will defend. Never mind the fact that the hospital could have provided alternatives to the abortion that would have saved both the woman & the child's life.
The ACLU in its hatred for God & the unborn also forgot that the Constitution was written to protect the rights mentioned in the Declaration, the 1st of which was life. Life for all including the unborn.
NEW YORK, December 16, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The American Civil Liberties Union has attacked Bishop Thomas Olmsted of Phoenix after news broke this week that the bishop had taken further steps against a Catholic hospital that had performed a direct abortion.
Reacting to the latest clash, Alexa Kolbi-Molinas, staff attorney with the ACLU Reproductive Freedom Project, said the staff of the St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center “did the right thing” by killing an unborn child late last year to avert aggravation of the mother’s pulmonary hypertension.
“A hospital’s first responsibility must be to protect the health of its patient,” said Kolbi-Molinas in a statement Wednesday. “Religiously affiliated hospitals are not exempt from federal laws that protect a patient’s right to receive emergency care, and cannot invoke their religious status to jeopardize the health and lives of pregnant women.”
The pro-abortion wing of the advocacy group had already written to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in July of this year urging them to investigate Catholic hospitals that refuse to perform direct abortions as a matter of Catholic moral principle.
The Arizona Republic had revealed earlier this week that Bishop Olmsted had offered an ultimatum to the hospital’s parent company in order to keep their official Catholic status. The bishop said the hospital would have to backtrack on its endorsement of the abortion, submit to a diocesan review, and agree to ongoing staff training on the U.S. bishops’ Ethical and Religious Directives.
Should the hospital not comply, it would still be able to call itself “Catholic,” but the diocese would officially renounce the facility and priests would no longer be permitted to conduct Mass there.
