ACLU Sues Federal Government for Granting Millions of Dollars to Religious Groups That Deny Young Women Access to Medical Care

WASHINGTON - The American Civil Liberties Union, the ACLU of Northern California, and the ACLU Foundation of Southern California today filed a lawsuit against the federal government for awarding millions of dollars annually to organizations that fail to provide crucial medical care to unaccompanied immigrant minors. The government authorizes some of these organizations to refuse — on religious grounds — to follow the law that requires access to contraception and abortion, even in cases of rape.

Thank you, ACLU. The rest of us should not be subject to someone's or some organization's superstitious claptrap. It has to stop. Hospitals to, must be held to standards of care regardless of what belief system they entertain about the supernatural approval or disapproval of medical care the patients need.
