Passing of Obamacare May Result in Closing of Catholic Hospitals: (You can 'thank' McNerney)

Original post made by Brian, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Oct 15, 2010

"PA Catholic hospital closings are a sign of things to come..."

The bad consequences of Obamacare are on full display in Pennsylvania, but the lessons that the situation provides should motivate us all into taking action nationwide.

What is this supposed to mean?

"...more difficult for Catholics to have access to ethical health care."

If you don't want an abortion, don't have one. What other ethical treatments are you referring to? Please explain because I could not imagine what that could mean. The doctors are there to save your life, are you saying you don't want them to?

Another thought.

If the Catholic Hospital is the one the ambulance brings you to and your life is in danger due to a difficult delivery, we know the hospital would save the fetus over the mother. I would stay very far away from a hospital like that. Who wants religious doctors making your decisions for you? No thanks.

Nothing good can come from medical care based on any religion. I'm not seeing the problem in making those hospitals secular in order to serve the greater public.

Righto Janna. I'm not for government healthcare....but we'd all be better off without catholic churches & hospitals meddling & dictating our lives...and if the pope stayed out of our laws, our government, and all our lives. That elected guy in Italy, has NO special priviledges granted by our constitution...just to leave us all alone. But,pope would rather starving mexicans continue to breed than LOVE their existing children ENOUGH to use condoms and not breed MORE starving children...which is SO those here & yet to come. There would never be a need for ANY abortions with the intelligent & caring use of condoms! It's always about abortion !.....which their zealotry CAUSES ! Beware of catholic CANDIDATEs whether Dem or Repub...

Don't miss out on the discussion!
