Supreme Court Refuses to Hear Catholic Hospital Challenge to Transgender Surgery

On Monday, the Supreme Court refused to hear a challenge regarding a Catholic hospital’s refusal to perform transgender surgery. The decision left in place a lower court’s ruling that sided with Evan Minton, a transgender man. Minton sued Dignity Health after the hospital refused to perform his hysterectomy.

The Washington Times reports:

He received the surgery three days later at a non-religious hospital but filed a lawsuit in California claiming he was discriminated against.

The lower courts ruled in his favor and against the hospital, which asked the justices to review the case.

Specifically, Dignity Health argued that religious health care institutions should be protected by the First Amendment and not forced to perform surgeries that conflict with its ethics.

Justices Neil M. Gorsuch, Clarence Thomas and Samuel A. Alito Jr. would have taken up the case for review.

However, a majority of justices refused to review the case. It takes four justices to agree to appeal the case.

What is HER problem? She got her surgery, didn’t she. Now she is just being spiteful and bullying the hospital, probably thinking she can get funds to pay for her surgery.

How can a “he” have a hysterectomy? Further still, since this is an “elective” surgery, why can only one party involved be allowed to elect to take part?

The Catholic Church is in Apostacy anyway under the leadership of Satan. What does it matter if they perform this elective surgery or not now? The fact is a man is a man and a woman is a woman and even this surgery can’t change that. This is simply body mutilation. It is an abomination to God.

Apparently the crusades ended too early and were too merciful. Apparently Mr Khamael you are accusing one third of the population of the USA of Apostacy?

Look up Cardinal Vigiano…he is the papal nuncio to the USA…a very holy priest..listen to what he has to say…he would agree with Khamael…according to the Cardinal there is the deep state and the deep church…it is these two shadows that are in collusion with each other working to bring about the one world govt and the false church.

Khamael, your judging is obvious, as is your ignorance of Scripture. The Catholic Church, founded upon the leadership of St. Peter, cannot fall into apostasy. It is the only church with that promise from Jesus Christ himself (that Hell will never defeat it, see Matthew 16). Unlike other denominations and religions, it was formed by God (Jesus), not mere men! And, it has preserved the original Apostolic faith, including the 7 valid sacraments instituted by Our Lord, for nearly 2,000 years! (2 Thess. 2:15) That said, yes, there are, and have always been, some apostate laymen, priests, bishops and even worldly popes. Many are called, but few are chosen. The RCC may one day split or be badly shaken, but it will never be defeated by the forces of evil. Jesus said so…

You couldn’t wait to release your venom against the Catholic Church for no apparent reason.

Apostasy is the correct word. This has been going on since shortly after Vatican II Council and was indeed the “Great Apostasy” predicted in the Holy Bible.

I agree Susanna, Khamael is correct. The Catholic Church and many of our churches are NOT teaching or following the Bible. They are just going with the worldly flow just as the priest of old Jerusalem did in the time of Jesus. Most of our churches are corrupted in one way or another. As a Christian nation we have dropped the ball and need to wake up. God is knocking!

If you listen to the prophets, Robin Bullock, Hank Kunneman and others they are saying exactly what you said that the churches have become weak falling to society and God is going to correct it. Listen to them for hope that is coming! 🤗

Surgery isn’t the answer. Too bad the docs just don’t remove every thing right to the ribs and the patient can then decide which parts they want back.

Did Kavanaugh and Barrett go AWOL or vacation? Difficult to understand why they would not agree to hear this case involving manifest injustice. God is not amused, nor even amazed. I know, we talk often.

So hospitals are allowed to decline transplant surgery to save a life because the recipient hasn’t subjected herself to the jab, BUT a hospital cannot refuse to perform elective, body mutilation surgery.
Sure am glad the pope has stated Bite Me is a good Catholic; pope is now condoning baby murders and body mutilation. Proud to be a FORMER Catholic.

I left the mainstream false church over twenty years ago. I only attend the Tridentine Rite and those who have retained the Magisterium of the faith.

There is definitely a war of good against evil and it is disappointing that Kavanaugh and Barrett went silent, but let’s remember that, even when our Lord Jesus Christ founded the Church, there was a Judas, and the Apostles didn’t flee the Church then. They persevered, even onto death. The Church is not, and will never be led by Satan. It is infiltrated by him though, but like our Lord said, “not even the gates of hell will prevail against it”. Let’s keep the faith..

LISTEN UP…The U.S. SUPREME COURT Should Make a DECISION on ALL CASES. THAT is T HEIR JOB. SHOULD A ny DOCTOR Be FORCED to Perform ABORTIONS or SURG ERIES that is Against Their RELIGIOUS BELIEFS.??? SHOULD a PRIEST Be FORCED to Give COMMUNION to SOMEONE Who Does NOT Turn AWAY from SIN.?? I THINK NOT. NOT Even GOD Forces HIS WILL on PEOPLE. HE Lets PEOPLE Choose Between GOOD and EVIL…RIGHT and WRONG. From SamuraiQueen. 😄😄😄

So after they made such a big deal that she was a roman catholic and many, many people stuck up for her and her (what we though) so called faith. So like palozi, kerry, biden and a whole other bunch of so called CATHOLICS in name only she, for want of a better word, shit on her religion. Dam we need one heck of a lot more venting on these so called supreme court prospects. But we know they are all lawyers and say 99 or so percent are crooked,….so what do/did we expect in her case.

Kavanaugh and Barrett are the result of the rabid heresy which infiltrated the Catholic Church after Vatican Council II. They were brainwashed by the liberals in the colleges.

A man can’t have a hysterectomy. This man needs to be in a mental institution as well as the judge.

Our Founding Father’s ‘ warned ‘ if, the judiciary was to become ‘compromised’,
Which would send America into a state of
Chaos & Tyranny, ultimately erasing America’s Judeo-Christian underpinnings, & changing the Republic to a Socialistic Oligarchy, ruled by global elitists, dressed in black robes.

All anyone has to do is take a look around our country and you can see they were right. We are being destroyed from within, and the liberal socialists are leading this country towards that second war for independence.

Why can Hospital, refuse service to a Non-Vaccinated Person, but a Religion’s Hospital, can’t refuse to Sin, by doing something against GOD and the Church?

What’s the matter with Amy Barrett and Kavanaugh? Are they too woke to protect Religious Liberty? The hospital should file a counter suit defending their Religious Liberty Autonomy from Political Lawsuits. My advice to the Catholic Hospital is contact “Alliance Defending Freedom” for assistance.

The Blessed Mother warned in Fatima back in 1913 that the final battle between her and satan will be over marriage and the family…you are now witnessing the once hidden spiritual battle now out in the open . In the end her Immaculate Heart shall be victorious.Keep the faith.
