The American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit last week against Trinity Health Corporation, one of the nation’s largest Catholic health care groups, for refusing to provide emergency abortions.

The formal complaint is based on the health system’s “repeated and systematic failure to provide women suffering pregnancy complications with appropriate emergency abortions as required by federal law,” according to an ACLU press release.

Fox News religion correspondent Father John Morris said this is another example of religious institutions being forced to do things against their beliefs.

"The ACLU wants no religious belief whatsoever to get in the way of their objectives, their goals, their ideology," Father Jonathan said. "Would the ACLU be happy if every Catholic hospital had to do full-term abortions? You better believe it. No doubt."

He said the fundamental issue is that the ACLU doesn't believe that the baby inside the mother is also a patient.
