Pregnant Woman Suffers. You Won't Believe Who's to Blame. So what trumps what here? Does the Catholic Hospital's religious freedom trump the personal health of individuals? Is it moral to withhold vital medical information from a patient? At the very least, should the hospital inform the patient that she should seek other medical advice because they feel no obligation to provide her with the facts of her situation? If the woman had gone home and died or had something serious happen, is that medical negligence? I'm having a hard time understanding how a religious institution can consider this an act of morality.
