  •  Why paients need to know (0+ / 0-)

    The average healthcare consumer isn't aware that there is a difference between generally accepted medical practice and practice that is bound by relgious beliefs.  Catholic hospitals are not the only entities bound by relgious dogma, other examples include Christian Science and Jehovah's Witness.  CS and JW are up front about their relgious beliefs and practices, catholic providers generally aren't, so if you don't know about the difference, too bad for you.

    Don't look back, something may be gaining on you. - L. "Satchel" Paige
