Futhermore, please point to the Directive that drove the results of this case. http://www.usccb.org/issues-and-acti...ition-2009.pdf

And in terms of the hospital/MD not being named....perhaps it is because it was a group making the rules that the hospital/MDs were abiding by.
Going after the writer would be like saying "well Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence, the rest of us are not accountable".
However, the suit focuses on Directive 45, which states that they should not perform abortions. However, they never mention directive 47, which states:
So they are binding this whole lawsuit on the Directives, yet they fail to mention this one which lets the Doctors and the Hospital determine the appropriate course of action, even if it results in the death of an unborn child. Kinda throws a monkey wrench into the entire suit.47. Operations, treatments, and medications that have as their direct purpose the cure of a
proportionately serious pathological condition of a pregnant woman are permitted when they
cannot be safely postponed until the unborn child is viable, even if they will result in the death of
the unborn child.
Additionally, in the suit, they don't mention at any time what the opinion of the actual doctors and nurses at the hospital on the three separate occasions were. They mention that doctors were consulted, but they never give their opinion, instead they focus on administration officials opinions.
I should add I am a Paramedic and have seen the media absolutely misreport stories for over a decade. Its amazing how piss-poor the standards for journalists are these days.
In the end a hispanic/Jewish guy was exonerated by women, and yet it was still white racists fault.
The left exposed its bias for all in that trial.
Just an FYI: there are 3 defendants who work/worked for Catholic Health Ministries who are also named in suit.
73-77 on page 11
73 Defendant Stanley Urban is the current Chair and Defendants Robert Ladenburger and Mary Mollison are former Chairs of Catholic Health Ministries (“CHM”), an unincorporated foreign entity that required MHP to adhere to the Directives.
74. The decision that MHP would adhere to Defendant USCCB’s Directives was made by CHM in the Eastern District of Michigan.
75. CHM is not an incorporated entity under the laws of any state in the United States or any foreign country.
76. As Chairs of the unincorporated entity CHM, Defendants Urban, Ladenburger and Mollison are personally and/or vicariously liable for the acts and omissions of CHM.
77. In 2000, CHM was established as a public juridic person by an agency within the Vatican under “canon law,” a recognized foreign legal system.
