Phoenix Catholic doctors back bishop’s stand on Catholic hospital abortion

Catholic World News - May 19, 2010

The Catholic Physicians Guild of Phoenix has issued a statement in support of Bishop Thomas Olmsted, who condemned an abortion that took place at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix. Medical staff killed the unborn child after a hospital ethics committee deemed the abortion necessary to save the mother’s life.

“The Catholic Physicians Guild of Phoenix fully supports the Most Rev. Thomas J. Olmsted with respect to matters of life of a mother pregnant with a child in her womb,” says Dr. William Brophy, the guild’s president. “An action which is in and of itself wrong, in that it lacks goodness as discerned by the light of human reason, is never justified by circumstances or intended end. Such is the case of abortion.”
