In a disturbing development, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Phoenix is pressuring one of the nation's largest hospital systems to stop providing life-saving abortions. This extreme stance by the diocese was made public yesterday after the media published a vitriolic letter that the Bishop of Phoenix, Thomas Olmsted, wrote to Catholic Healthcare West (CHW).
This issue stems from an abortion that was performed in a Phoenix hospital, St. Joseph's, which is part of CHW, in November 2009. The woman, a young mother of four children, would have died if she did not receive an abortion.

This exactly the kind of stupidity one would expect from the catholic church.
