ACLU Files Lawsuit Against Hospital for Denying Reproductive Health Care

WASHINGTON - The ACLU and the law firm of Covington & Burling LLP have filed a lawsuit challenging Dignity Health’s use of religious directives to deny basic reproductive health care to its patients. Filed on behalf of patient Rebecca Chamorro and Physicians for Reproductive Health, the suit argues that withholding pregnancy-related care for reasons other than medical considerations is illegal in California.

Seems a bit ironic, as the ACLU has proven to be perfectly willing to support religious ideologues when the issue is religion vs. the fundamental right to full genital integrity.
