Tubal Ligations at BHE Following Hospital Merger: Here and Now

The University of Louisville has expanded its partnership with Baptist Hospital East in order to move certain procedures to that facility. The procedures being moved to BHE include those that will eventually be banned at U of L Hospital following its proposed merger with Jewish Hospital and a division of Catholic Health Initiatives. Following that merger, all doctors will have to follow Catholic care directives in the merged facilities, which means women will not be able to undergo tubal ligations in those hospitals. WFPL News Director Gabe Bullard explained these latest developments to Todd Mundt today on Here and Now.
