CWN Editor's Note: “Direct sterilization of either men or women, whether permanent or temporary, is not permitted in a Catholic health care institution,” according to the US bishops’ health care directives Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services. “Procedures that induce sterility are permitted when their direct effect is the cure or alleviation of a present and serious pathology and a simpler treatment is not available.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
