Could St. Louis lose its Catholic hospitals under new federal abortion legislation?

St. Louis Post-Dispatch, March 9, 2009
A proposed bill that would make major changes in the U.S. abortion landscape has Roman Catholic bishops threatening to close Catholic hospitals if the Democratic Congress and White House make it law. FOCA, as the bill is known, would make federal law out of the abortion protections established in 1973 by the U.S. Supreme Court's Roe vs. Wade ruling. The legislation has some Roman Catholic bishops threatening to shutter the country's 624 Catholic hospitals rather than comply.
