Phoenix Diocese may sever mega-hospital system's Catholic credentials over abortion flak – Jill Stanek

…The scandal is spreading. reported May 20:

Catholic Healthcare West, one of the largest religious health systems in the country with 38 hospitals, is in danger of losing its status as a Roman Catholic institution in Phoenix as a result of recent incidents including an abortion approved by a nun at the system’s largest hospital….

The Rev. Thomas Olmsted [pictured left], bishop of the Diocese of Phoenix, said in written statements that Sister Margaret McBride was excommunicated from the church after she admitted to Olmsted that she approved of the abortion after the pregnancy was said to have threatened the life of the mother.

“The mother’s life cannot be preferred over the child’s. Both lives are equal,” the diocese said in a statement. “It is not better to save one life while murdering another. It is not better that the mother live the rest of her existence having had her child killed.”
