The American Civil Liberties Union and the American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan have announced that they have filed a federal lawsuit against Trinity Health Corporation, a Catholic health organization, for refusing to perform abortions.
A spokesperson for Trinity Health said in a statement provided to The Daily Signal that “this case has no merit.”
“A federal court already dismissed a similar ACLU claim, and we will seek dismissal of this suit for the same reason. The Ethical and Religious Directives are entirely consistent with high-quality health care, and our clinicians continue to provide superb care throughout the communities we serve. We are proud that more than 25,000 licensed physicians work directly with our health system and share our commitment to people-centered care.”
As a Catholic health organization, Trinity Health complies with the Ethical and Religious Directives put forth by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
