Bishop Tobin's withdrawal of hospital from CHA draws reactions

Catholic World News - April 29, 2010

Secular reporters in Rhode Island are reporting the decision by Bishop Thomas Tobin of Providence to withdraw a local Catholic hospital from membership in the Catholic Health Association (CHA). The bishop's decision-- prompted by the CHA support for President Obama's health-care reform bill, in contrast to the US bishops' opposition-- was reported here two weeks ago.
