Patients and Physicians Speak Out About Catholic Hospitals and the Threat to Women's Health and Lives

Health Care Denied

Report Recommendations:

  • A statement from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) clarifying that all hospitals, regardless of religious affiliation, are required by federal law to provide emergency reproductive health care;
  • A systematic investigation by CMS into violations by Catholic hospitals of federal laws requiring emergency care, and a commitment to taking all necessary corrective action where violations are found;
  • Most importantly, a change in our public policies, to protect women in need of reproductive health services and the practitioners who are prohibited from providing this essential care.
