Sanity Prevails

The joint venture between two local hospitals that I wrote about here now is Yesterday's News.

A huge community effort, a Facebook page, petitions, and common sense from physicians on the staff of the secular hospital all worked together for good.

The two hospitals issued a joint statement that they have decided to end discussions to create a partnership. As explained in my earlier post, this proposed partnership had been contingent on the secular hospital's  agreeing to discontinue providing abortion services.

Relieved, Near Philadelphia

The fight is over ....for now. Those "we know what's best for you" types are pretty sneaky and lay low for awhile only to launch a new attack. Don't let your guard down.

I'm glad to hear that as your Near Philadelphia hospital also owns my area hospital. It's good to know things won't be changing!
