Here is a quote from article I read.
“And now, to make it worse, the government is codifying these refusals, first through legislation and now with the recent Supreme Court decision, where five Catholic men decided that they could better determine what was moral and good than the physicians, women and families facing difficult, personal choices in problem pregnancies,” it added.
The group includes ordained Protestant ministers, a Jewish activist, an expert on women’s reproductive rights and several physicians.
“The threat comes from a few, but powerful, religions and a few … powerful religious leaders who pretend to speak for all religions,” said Larry Greenfield, executive minister of the American Baptist Churches of Metro Chicago.
“Health care decisions ought to be made freely, based on medical expertise and individual conscience,” he added.
The group wrote up a series of guidelines and asked for all health care providers to implement them.
They include allowing doctors to use best medical practices, providing comprehensive counseling on sexual or reproductive health and an agreement to honor advance directives – including “do not resuscitate” orders.
“Refusal to provide health care would be balanced by alternate service delivery so that no one would be victimized when another exercises his/her conscience,” the guidelines read.
Why are these so called Protestant leaders so oppose to Supreme Court decision to uphold the Ban on Partial Birth of Abortion?
It just prove to me that Protestant Ministers DON’T have a say on the use of abortion, or contraception. They just say they are ok for use.
The Catholic Church stands alone… This is sad. For a Protestant to support Abortion is wrong! They should support the Catholic Church and the Supreme Court decision on Partial Birth Abortion NOT CONDEMNED IT!
