Ligation Frustration - Litigation!

I'm a little slow on this report from CBC, but wanted to note it anyway, that Leann Gunther of Humboldt Saskatchewan is getting a $7,875.00 settlement from the the Saskatchewan Catholic Health Corp. in compensation for the Catholic-run hospital's refusal to give her a tubal ligation.

Not only should health care never be in relationship with religion, but this was simply an excuse to deny a woman her choice of reproduction. Thank godde the hospital's governance and operations are being handed over to the public health region at the end of this year.
