CATALONIA, Spain, September 7, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Several Catholic hospitals in Spain's Catalonia region have been accused of providing abortions by the Spanish newspaper ABC.
ABC reports that the health ministry records of two Catholic hospitals, the Sant Pau (Saint Paul) Hospital and the Hospital of Granollers, show that they have for years performed "Voluntary Interruptions of Pregnancy." ABC also reports that it has confirmed that in just one year, Sant Pau Hospital has performed twenty such abortions. The same hospital has lobbied in favor of the legalization of the abortion-inducing "morning after pill," RU-486, ABC reports. Click here to read the full story.
This should be an interesting story to follow. The RCC has always been against abortions so I am sure that when this finally breaks loose and all of the facts are in there will be some Catholic hospitals in Spain were "Heads" will roll or "Funding" will stop. I remember when I was employed at Mercy Medical Center here in the Roseburg, Oregon area, that it was sometimes hard to hire or keep the hospital employed with Christians. So these accusations are not a big surprise to me because there are a lot of non-believes that make it up the corporate ladder even in a Catholic funded and owned hospital. God's blessings.
