Tulsa Public Radio general manager Rich Fisher recently interviewed CatholicWatch founder Monica Harrington about the intersection of religion and health care, and especially how Catholic bishops are imposing their “moral authority” over taxpayer-financed health care.
From the Tulsa Public Radio overview:
“From pharmacists who refuse to dispense Plan B drugs (which prevent ovulation) to legislation designed to limit a patient’s end-of-life or euthanasia options, there’s no shortage of controversial topics in America today when it comes to religion/morality overlapping with science/medicine. On this edition of ST, we discuss such a topic as we confront certain practices of some Catholic hospitals. Our guess is Monica Harrington, an ardent critic of such hospitals who thinks they are unfairly — and illegally — imposing their moral values upon their patients (and are doing so in institutions that, while private, are also heavily financed with taxpayer dollars).”
