USCCB President Archbishop Kurtz responds to ACLU’s Lawsuit

Church urges respectful, compassionate care for pregnant women and their children ACLU claims 'baseless' and lawsuit 'misguided' Catholic healthcare ministries show 'fierce devotion to life of each patient'
by USCCB | Source:

December 6, 2013

WASHINGTON—Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, called a suit by the American Civil Liberties Union against the U.S. bishops for their "Ethical and Religious Directives" (ERDs) "misguided" and promised to defend Catholic teachings "in season and out."

He issued the statement December 6.

Archbishop Kurtz's statement follows:

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has received from the media a complaint prepared by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) in the case of Means v. USCCB. Though the complaint has not yet been served, the Conference will offer a public response.

   It is important to note at the outset that the death of any unborn child is tragic, and we feel deeply for any mother who suffers such pain and loss. We cannot speak to the facts of the specific situation described in the complaint, which can be addressed only by those directly involved. The suit instead claims that our document titled "Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services" (ERDs) encourages or requires substandard treatment of pregnant women because it does not approve the direct killing of their unborn children.

   This claim is baseless. The ERDs urge respectful and compassionate care for both mothers and their children, both during and after pregnancy. Regarding abortion, the ERDs restate the universal and consistent teaching of the Catholic Church on defending the life of the unborn child—a defense that, as Pope Francis recently reminded us, "is closely linked to the defense of each and every other human right" (Evangelii Gaudium, no. 213). This same commitment to the life of each human individual has motivated Catholics to establish the nation's largest network of nonprofit health care ministries. These ministries provide high-quality care to women and children, including those who lack health coverage and financial resources. The Church's rejection of abortion also mirrors the Hippocratic Oath that gave rise to the very idea of medicine as a profession, a calling with its own life-affirming moral code.

   The Church holds that all human life, both before and after birth, has inherent dignity, and that health care providers have the corresponding duty to respect the dignity of all their patients. This lawsuit argues that it is legally "negligent" for the Catholic bishops to proclaim this core teaching of our faith. Thus, the suit urges the government to punish that proclamation with civil liability, a clear violation of the First Amendment.

   A robust Catholic presence in health care helps build a society where medical providers show a fierce devotion to the life and health of each patient, including those most marginalized and in need. It witnesses against a utilitarian calculus about the relative value of different human lives. And it provides a haven for pregnant women and their unborn children regardless of their financial resources. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops will continue to defend these principles in season and out, and we will defend ourselves against this misguided lawsuit.
