The largest association of Catholic individuals in health care is condemning the Biden administration for ordering health care providers to perform abortions in emergenrcy situations under federal law.
Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) Xavier Becerra sent a letter instructing providers to perform abortions in emergencies — regardless of state law — under the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) on July 11.
“Catholic health care agencies and providers are committed to the same goals intended by the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act,” Dr. Marie Hilliard, co-chair of the Catholic Medical Association‘s Ethics Committee told CNA. “They are dedicated to providing the highest standard of care to both the mother and her unborn child without directly compromising either one in the process.”
She added: “In fact, by the consistently high quality of care it is known to provide, Catholic health care has demonstrated that both can be beautifully served.”
Enacted in 1986, then Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act ensures that every person who enters an emergency room is treated and stabilized, regardless of their insurance status or ability to pay. Now, the Biden administration says, it includes abortion.

So glad I live in a red state
Remember the Governor Ronald Regan signed the most liberal abortion bill in the country years before Roe.
He was educated………..and became Pro Liffe
Please pray that President Biden recovers from Covid. I can’t imagine how much worse things will be if Kamala becomes president.
Stupid libs think that by declaring anything an emergency they can get what
they want. Doesn’t work that way.
To pray for Biden: Newsom has already been called to the White House. My guess is that Biden will be disposed of, Kamala will become President and Newsom will be her VP. The VP must be approved by a majority in both Houses of Congress — which happens to be Democrat. This all has to happen before the November midterms, of course.
Did you get your crystal ball from Amazon.com?
I think the President and Vice President must be from 2 different states.
No, they don’t. Political parties usually do that to get more electoral votes by having two different states represented on the ticket.
They don’t have to be from different states to hold office, as this scenario imagines, but electors cannot vote for both president and Vice President if they are of the same state as the elector. So California electors could not vote for both Harris and Newsom, making election without California electoral votes nearly impossible. I don’t think it’s been tested in courts, and is a hold-over from the era when the person with the greatest number of electoral votes became president and the number 2 vote getter got vice-president. In any case, newsroom is not going to be Vice President, imho.
Maybe I’ll be like one of those liberals/progressives who say they’ll leave the country if a Republican is elected, but never do.
We’ve already afflicted the nation with Ms. Harris, let’s not add insult in injury with Newsom.
Maybe the central valley can secede and become its own, and normal, state. Coastal California can move its capital to Berkeley or Santa Cruz.
… or, the Castro!
