    Heres some more info/articles


    ACLU, Michigan woman sue Catholic Bishops over hospital rules - CNN.com
    ACLU v. Catholic bishops: Tamesha Means was turned away from Michigan’s Mercy Health Partners for miscarrying.

    Michigan woman sues Catholic health officials, claiming hospital failed to properly treat miscarriage* - NY Daily News



    Tamesha Means' water broke early on December 1, 2010.

    Just 18 weeks pregnant, she called a friend for a ride to Mercy Health Partners, the only hospital in Muskegon County, Michigan.
    During that visit, and two others the following day, Means was in excruciating pain.

    She was sent home twice -- given pain medication, told to return if her contractions became unbearable -- and was waiting to be discharged for a third time when she started to give birth.

    The baby died less than three hours after it was delivered.

    Catholic Hospital Refuses To Treat Miscarrying Woman; ACLU Sues Catholic Bishops Over Reproductive Rights

    In what is believed to be the first lawsuit of its kind, the American Civil Liberties Union is suing the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and a Catholic hospital in Michigan for negligence in treating a woman with dangerous pregnancy complications.

    The suit is on behalf of Tamesha Means, a mother of three who was 18 weeks pregnant when her water broke. At Mercy Health Partners (MHP), the Catholic hospital where she sought care (the only hospital within miles), no one told her her fetus had almost no chance of survival under the circumstances, or that she was at risk for serious infection if labor was not induced to terminate the pregnancy. Instead, she was sent home and told to come back a week later.

    Means’ case is similar to that of Savita Halapannavar, the Indian woman who died last year of infection in an Irish hospital after she was denied a termination during a miscarriage at 17 weeks. An official report found a “failure in the provision of the most basic elements of patient care.” Irish law was changed to allow abortions in cases of life endangerment.

    Means contracted two serious infections during her ordeal, but survived. According to the complaint, her condition worsened as repeat visits to the Catholic hospital failed to result in adequate treatment. “As she waited to be sent home for the third time, the feet of the fetus breached her cervix and she began to deliver. The baby died shortly after birth. MHP then told Ms. Means she needed to make funeral arrangements.”


    While the suit, filed in federal district court in Michigan, is unique, the circumstances are not, both in the hospital and beyond. The suit cites a public health educator who knew of at least five instances in which Mercy Health Partners did not induce labor in similarly dangerous situations. And a recent study by medical sociologist Lori Freedman published in the American Journal of Bioethics Primary Research did in-depth interviews with doctors at Catholic hospitals around the country and found that “when applied to cases in which patients were already losing a desired pregnancy and/or the patient’s health was at risk, some physicians found the institutional restrictions on care to be unacceptable.”

    totally and absolutely disgusting, if these articles are in fact accurate I hope they sue the pants off all these hospitals!!

    all the people involved in the decisions should be terminated and banned from the medical profession at the least.

    Seems to me if all this is true there could even be criminal charges and i hope so, violating rights like that and purposely endangering a patient is disgusting.

    For many religious people, women cease to be humans when they become pregnant. Shut up and give birth.

    One of the many reason I dropped religions as a teenager.

    Catholic hospital 'risked woman's life by forcing her to deliver 18-week fetus that had no chance of survival' because of no abortion policy.

    • Tamesha Means, 30, of Muskegon, Michigan, filed a lawsuit Friday against the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops
    • It claims Means, then 27 and a mother-of-two, visited the hospital - the only one in her county - three times after her water broke five months early
    • She says she was told to go home before she miscarried on the third visit and was forced to deliver the 18 week fetus feet-first



    Shades of the debacle in Ireland where the woman died.



    I don't know why people are all flustered about the possible imposition of sharia law when there is a christian version just as bad and already in place.
    I would be surprised if she hadn't signed off on this procedure. Good luck with that.

    IF there was premature rupture of membraine, the baby probably needed to be delivered anyway.

    Surely no journalist would forget to ask that.
