I don't think any of this was what the Affordable Care Act was about.


Sadly in many areas of the country religious based hospitals are the only ones available within a reasonable distance.


It's discouraging that their religious biases don't stop them from access to government funds, and I wouldn't go to a religious hospital except in an emergency.

The problem is that people don't realize how the religious rules could affect them until its too late and they're already admitted, such as when their pregnancy requires what's considered abortion services, or compassionate end of life needs come into play.


I'm actual fine with that because in CA there are many other options; and as a woman, I wouldn't want to be where someone was judging my morality at a time such as terminating a pregnancy. But that's just me.
