Their religious policies are violating Roe Vs Wade. It's law federal law which made abortions legal. As for a better healthcare system. Anybody remmeber that not too long ago Providence St. Josephs was cited for lack of hygiene. I think that is a hell of a lot more important. DUH. Instead of being so concerned re their religious beliefs they need to be more concerned about thier alleged lack of quality care. I also know of several folks who were ni St. Josephs. One family member died, another's loved one was in the hospital. About a week after the person died the Foundation was already asking for money. Please. I can't remember if the other person was still in the hospital or was just released when the hospital already asked for donations. Shame on them. I don't have as big of a problem violating Roe vs Wade but when folks die and then immediately ask the surviving family member for money I find that appalling along with the citiations they received.

Thank-you Providence of Tarzana for your take over the hospital and holding your ground on your beliefs. This is a private hospital and has the legal rights to deny any practice that it find unmoral. Thank-you Again

You may want to read up on the law. Providence is a private organization and under no legal obligation to perform abortions at their facilities.

Its about religious control and this fricken country was founded on SEPARATION of Church and State.
So if that is the case then men who masturbate are committing a sin and a crime, because they are wasting potential life everytime the pleasure themselves. Oh but we dont talk about that. How is it that man can just jack off some life and its no big deal. But a women wants to make a personal choice we have the fricken Church stepping in telling us NO. Going so far as to buy hospital's to control us.
When men stop wasting potential life then we can talk about the choices that women make.
Religion is just a way to keep society in order by fear.

"If we wouldn't have been bought by Providence, we would have disappeared" - That is they key quote for those who would find problematic the policies of a Catholic-affiliated hospital. Would having no hospital at all be a better alternative for women's health?

Physicians usually have privileges at more than one facility, though most of their hospitalizations are where their offices are nearest.
Providence saved a hospital, saved jobs. The physicians can do the tubals, etc. at a different hospital.
So far Providence's policies have not hurt their other hospitals.
FYI - I'm Pro-Choice, have worked in healthcare over 30 years, and agree with LeftRightWrong.

if you think obortion is ok but the deathe penalty
is wrong you are a democrat.justthink if barf face Obama gets in he will do the obortions him self.YOU dam liberals make me sick. If you do not want a baby do not have one.Obortion should be leagal for a reason rape insect for the life of the mother. if there is no reason then it should be illegal.WOMEN should get their tubes tied or stay off there backs.use birth control to avoid getting pregnant.obama supports full term obortions do you.Obortion is murder and the liberals support killing a un born baby for no reason.TARZAANA HOSPITAL has ever right to say no.SO dont worry liberals you can still murder your un born baby but it will not be done at the new hospital.like i said dont want a baby do not have one and stay off your back if you know what i mean.also there are alot of married couples who would love to adopt so there are other ways.

Here is a thought. If you do not want children then use birth control. Period. Don't give me that line about how not all birth control works. Use more than one. If you don't like the rules then buy yourself a hospital. Roe vs. Wade made the act of abortion legal. The law did not make it mandatory for a private healthcare system to provide the service. However, I believe as a county owned facility Los Angeles County Hospital provides such services, thereby giving you your "separation of church and state". Oh and Hobie, you need either typing or grammar lessons. As a man you are perfectly capable of using a condom or you can get a vasectomy. However, given your attitude I am willing the only one on their back is you. Keep those hands moisturized.

If you learn to spell and use proper grammar your sentiments might be taken seriously.
