Boston Catholic Hospital System Yields to Pro-Abortion FOCA Before it Happens

"Abortion advocates have yet to re-introduce the radical Freedom of Choice Act in this Congressional session, but the effects of the pro-abortion bill are already taking hold. That's because one Catholic hospital in Boston has agreed to go back on its pro-life policies in a merger that ultimately promotes abortion.

The nation's Catholic bishops have warned that one of the dangerous effects of FOCA is that it could result in shutting down Catholic hospitals that do not want to allow abortions on site.

"Only a few days ago, maybe eager to cozy up to the Obama administration and Sebelius, Caritas Christi announced a joint venture with the Centene Corporation to join a state-mandated health-insurance program that would include coverage for abortion and contraceptives -- what the Catholic hospital system calls 'confidential family-planning services," he explained.

Hudson says FOCA may not become law, but he sees the Obama administration as doing everything possible to implement it and to frighten Catholics hospitals like Caritas.

"Although the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) has not yet been introduced, the strategy of the Obama administration appears to be pursuing the equivalent outcomes of FOCA without passing FOCA itself," he says."

Either the pro-abortion heat has turned up too high for this Boston hospital, or, it is just revealing it's true colors, so to speak. Either way, for a Catholic hospital to turn on its heels and defy the core of its belief system is disturbing.
