Default Colombia: Catholic hospitals required to offer abortions

"the Colombian Constitutional Court has ruled that all hospitals, whether secular or religious, must retain doctors who are willing to perform abortions. The court also ruled that Catholic schools must educate students about their “abortion rights”-- a ruling that Catholic officials vowed to disobey."

This could easily happen in the U.S. or Europe or other Western nations.

With a ruling like this, I would think that the right decision would be to refuse to accept this law. Does anyone know the legal ramifications? I imagine they would begin with fines, or perhaps lawsuits if they refuse to hire someone who believes in abortion.

I am waiting for an institution to stand up to the law, and choose what is right. Sometimes the consequences make the decision more difficult (like adoption agencies closing for not adopting to same-sex couples), but this seems like an easy decision without understanding the full ramifications.

2cor 7:1 Therefore, having these promises, most beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of the flesh and of the spirit, perfecting sanctification in the fear of God.

Default Crying for Colombia

As a Colombian I feel very sad that this has happened in my country. A graduate of my law school (NYU) once told an audience that she was planning to push abortion rights into Colombia the same way they were pushed here. She succeeded and her last name was Roa, which is one letter from Roe as in Roe v. Wade.

Mother Teresa: "What is taking place in America is a war against the child. And if we accept that the mother can kill her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?"
