Catholic Hospital Turns Away Bleeding Woman For IUD

The Young Turks Follow
  • Video description
  • 4 years ago
A bleeding woman was turned away from a Catholic hospital because she was using an IUD, which the church/hospital frowns upon. Maybe leaving our health in the hands of religious zealots wasn’t such a great idea. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://tytnetwork.com/join

"When Melanie Jones arrived for her doctor’s appointment after experiencing bleeding and some pain, she suspected her IUD had become dislodged after a fall.
Her doctor confirmed this was the case, but informed her due to Catholic restrictions put in place by Chicago’s Mercy Hospital Health System, she’d be unable to remove the IUD.

Wait, what?

Rewire reports that although the doctor conferred with her colleagues to double check that she was following protocol, she returned only to tell Jones that her “hands [were] tied”. She also revealed that in addition, no one in Jones’s insurance network could remove the IUD because they followed similar restrictions. Turns out, Mercy like many Catholic medical providers follow directives issued by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops that restrict access to an array of services, including abortion care, tubal ligations, and contraception.”*
