1. The Catholic takeover of healthcare is dangerous.

You shouldn't go to a Catholic hospital and expect you will get decent care.

At all. Especially if you're a women or might be facing end-of-life decisions. In fact, try, at all possible costs to avoid one. Tell your loved ones and put in advanced medical directives that you want nothing to do with them. The problem is that many poor have no choice so dogma is given priority over your health.

This is such an important issue. The ACLU is suing other catholic hospitals for this as well.
