This is very sad, especially considering the major contributions Catholic medical practitioners and Catholic hospitals have made to the medical field and to healthcare.
Without Catholic hospitals a lot of people in third world countries would not have access to any form of healthcare.
I suspect it might be in part to their opposition to abortion, euthanasia and related life issues.
My brother is a doctor, my sister a physiotherapist and my brother in law sells medical equipment to hospitals, so I know a couple of people in the medical field through them. It’s shocking how many of them support , assisted suicide, euthanasia and abortion. Nearly all of them also support embryonic stem cell research. Some of them also don;t take kindly to anyone disagreeing with them on these issues.
The irony is Catholic doctors are being crowded out of their field for upholding the Hippocratic oath, especially the part on doing no harm to their patients.
