you both seem confused by it all

Perhaps a rest and reconsideration of what you've posted would be in order? Nothing happens in a day, and no doubt some repercussions from the Catholic Church will follow on the heels of this matter. One thing the Catholic church can't do is deny Jewish and doctors of other faith their own representation in American court systems. That doesn't mean they support the arguments made by those doctors' lawyers. I suspect there will have to be some dismissals throughout their system or strong agreements required from any doctors to abide by the faith based agenda in health care or seek employment elsewhere.
