    I couldn't disagree with Catholic doctrine, in nearly every way, more than I do -- particularly with respect to reproductive issues.

    But we're not talking about a Catholic hospital, which enjoys the various financial benefits of it's status serving the public good, refusing to provide medical care based on religious doctrine. We're talking about a highly selective, very expensive private Catholic university -- a university that students need to put a great deal of effort and consideration into applying to for. This isn't an emergency room that you end up in after being raped, only to find that doctors won't provide you with Plan B. There should be no element of surprise here. No laws are being broken with respect to discrimination, either. The Catholic church has a basically medieval perspective on sex. It's what you sign up for. Especially they are not only your university of choice, but also your LANDLORD.
