Yet more headline shenanigans:
Abortion laws threaten Catholic hospitals
I personally would have gone with
Catholic hospitals threaten to let women die to make a bullshit moral point
… but maybe that’s just me.
The Victorian Parliament is considering a Bill which would require medical practitioners, against their “conscientious objection” to abortion, to perform an abortion if necessary to save a woman’s life.
Obviously this kind of thing is not on.
THE Catholic Church’s extensive network of hospitals in Victoria faces a “real threat” from planned new abortion laws, Archbishop Denis Hart says.
He warned parishioners that Catholic-run hospitals might have to stop running conventional maternity and emergency services if Parliament passed the laws.
He warned in a pastoral letter that Catholic staff would face having to break the law if they wanted to maintain anti-abortion beliefs.
Bonus points for use of my personal favourite antichoicer slogan, “culture of death”.
More over at the Hoydens‘, but suffice it to say:
Archbishop Denis Hart, On the Charge of Taking “Prolife” Hypocrisy To Staggering New Levels of Stupid, you are Officially Scum.
