    She is suing them because they wouldn't giver her an abortion and that they didn't tell her that the baby wouldn't survive? Do you not see an obvious conflict between her positions? Do you think the baby would have survived the abortion? Do you think she didn't know what was going on after having had two kids that her water broke 5 months early?

    She is looking for a lottery ticket.

    I agree with you that she is looking for a lottery ticket. I won't dispute that at all. All I am saying is that the hospital/Dr/nurse whomever should have informed her as to what was happening and the danger she was in. Which according to her they didnt.

    Religion and medical science cannot be combined. When it is forced together under one institution, these are the results. And there are many other stories with similar circumstances like the OP. The sad part is that this woman had no other options. I guess she should have moved-

    Accprding to the ACLU lawsuit she is suing them because they did not inform her that continuing the pregnancy posed significant risks to her health. She deleveloped a life threating infection and when the hospital discovered the infection they were still going to send her back home without telling her.

    Tamesha rushed to Mercy Health Partners in Muskegon, Michigan, when her water broke after only 18 weeks of pregnancy. Based on the bishops' religious directives, the hospital sent her home twice even though Tamesha was in excruciating pain; there was virtually no chance that her pregnancy could survive, and continuing the pregnancy posed significant risks to her health.

    Because of its Catholic affiliation and binding directives, the hospital told Tamesha that there was nothing it could do and did not tell Tamesha that terminating her pregnancy was an option and the safest course for her condition. When Tamesha returned to the hospital a third time in extreme distress and with an infection, the hospital once again prepared to send her home. While staff prepared her discharge paperwork, she began to deliver. Only then did the hospital begin tending to Tamesha's miscarriage.

    The directives prohibit a pre-viability pregnancy termination, even when there is little or no chance that the fetus will survive, and the life or health of a pregnant woman is at risk.

    They also direct health care providers not to inform patients about alternatives inconsistent with those directives even when those alternatives are the best option for the patient's health.

    The lawsuit charges that, because of the directives, the USCCB is ultimately responsible for the unnecessary trauma and harm that Tamesha and other pregnant women in similar situations have experienced at Catholic-sponsored hospitals.

    If this is true, she should win this suit. But think about this, if corporations refuse to pay for healthcare that pays for this procedure would they be equally liable? Like the companies that refuse to pay for any sort of pregnancy termination?

    If this true and I have reason to believe it is true , because of my own personal experience many years ago when I went into early labor and miscarried at 20 weeks gestation, I hope she does win.

    They should not have sent her home without telling her they could not help her because hospital policy would not allow them to perform a D&E on pre viable fetus even if the fetus had no way of surviving.

    Yeah, I think its a big deal that her water broke at 18 weeks. There is no doubt she was miscarrying. It seems they should have done more than send her away constantly.

    According to the article the hospital could have induced labor, but they didn't do that or inform her of the situation.

    But I read induce labor. I guess there were other options including DnC, none of which the hospital was willing to do. But I don't understand why the hospital wouldn't even induce labor with medication. I guess they would consider that an abortion or termination of pregnancy, and that is really pushing it considering her medical needs.

    Its really messed up, and I hope she does when the lawsuit too.

    IF this is true and she wins that hospital is bat**** insane! IF true i hope she wins and wins big time!

    IF true they violated her rights and all the people involved in this decision should be fired and barred from practicing in the health care industry at the very least

    IF
    this is true they may find themselves in jail and rightfully so.
