Christians don't believe in their own doctrines

Just recently a woman was admitted at St. Thomas More hospital because she had a blocked artery. Several complications arose and her and her 2 unborn children died.
The husband is now suing the catholic hospital for the death of his wife and 2 children.
In the hospital's defense they allege that since the children were not delivered, they do not count as people under the law.
Basically unborn children are only people when it's used to withhold contraception from female employees, but when the hospital is being sued for malpractice, all of the sudden unborn children are no longer people.
I say the man should let the church argue this point, then when hearings are being held on providing contraception to woman that work at church own businesses, there will be precedence that the church does not believe unborn children are people.

It isn't that they don't follow their own doctrines...
society made it so that doctors feel like they have the obligation to exclude all religion beliefs to be more "rational" or "logical". So many scientists are basically being pressured to change what they believe just for for their career...
I don't think catholic churches only allow catholic/christian doctors to work there...I bet you there is a lot of doctors that were in that hospital that aren't religious in any sense.

Also through out history the church always did its best offering the people health needs or survival needs...however when the health system/whoever says what they think is best for survival/health...they are forces to act like every other hospital. I am not sure if they are required under law...but I am sure they are at least pressured into it by everyone.

Either that or this isn't a normal traditional sort of catholic practice...

Money > Religious doctrines

The Catholic Church makes an insane amount in profits (although they are the largest donor to charities, I'll give them that)

If your John Kerry/Nancy Pelosi Catholics are running the hospital, then no, there is no regard for sanctity of life.

But if this hospital is operating under the laws of the land, then it doesn't matter their personal views if the law has definitions that are the current rule of the land.

They're still hiding behind the very law they're trying to destroy

Hiding? Or just abiding by the law?

Most Catholic institutions I know of follow the law of the land whether they agree with it or not.

They could easily settle with the husband and acknowledge they actually believe in their own doctrine, they're just trying to save money

They might settle anyway. But still doesn't mean they aren't bound to the same laws of the land everyone else is.

They have the capacity in this case to abide by their own moral obligations instead of the law, no one is making them not settle.

Abiding and hiding are two completely different things. They could simply settle and follow their own beliefs
