Court Watch: Happening Today
A Catholic Hospital is being challenged for not performing an abortion, or referring a women to an abortion clinic. Tamesha Means of Muskegon, Michigan went to Mercy Hospital because of complications with her pregnancy. Mercy Hospital, seeing that there was little hope for the child, told her that there was nothing they could do. Means is suing for their refusal to discuss abortion as an option. Mercy Hospital is not the only hospital in Muskegon, and Means could have gone to others seeking assistance. Mercy lived up to its values and is now being sued. Religious Liberty is under attack.
Liberty University filed suit against Obamacare directly, challenging the 2012 Supreme Court decision. They also challenged the HHS mandate, which requires plans to cover abortifacias. Liberty's petition was denied in the 4th Circuit on December 2.
