Cardinals Cupich, Dolan blast HHS plan to require transgender procedures over religious objections

09/27/2022 | The Washington Times

Two of America’s most prominent Roman Catholic leaders — Chicago’s Cardinal Blase Cupich and New York’s Cardinal Timothy Dolan — said Tuesday that a Biden administration proposal to require Catholic hospitals to perform “gender transition” procedures would pose a challenge to those institutions, where the clerics say 1 in 7 Americans receive hospital care. In an op-ed published Tuesday in America magazine, a Jesuit publication, the cardinals said all patients at Catholic hospitals including those “who identify as transgender … receive the same treatment as any other patient.” They added that “if health care facilities are to be places where the twin pillars of faith and science stand together, then these facilities and their workers must not be coerced by the government to violate their consciences.”
