Report: Largest US Catholic Healthcare System Partners with Abortion Provider

The Lepanto Institute, a watchdog group, has raised concerns about one of America’s most prominent Catholic health systems, CommonSpirit Health.

The group recently published a 64-page report that shows CommonSpirit Health is providing transgender surgeries for minors and other gender-affirming care services including hormone therapies and puberty blockers.

Now, the Institute is alleging that CommonSpirit Health has partnered with a women’s clinic that provides telemed abortions.

While this partnership has yet to be confirmed, it raises serious ethical questions about the organization’s commitment to its Catholic roots.

Lepanto Institute shares:

In 2021, CommonSpirit announced a new partnership with Tia Women’s Health – a partnership designed to dramatically expand Tia’s impact by expanding its physical presence around the country.  And even though Tia has only recently begun providing medical abortions, its intention to expand the abortion industry through these clinics has been a matter of public record since its inception.

Tia Women’s Health, a New York based women’s primary and reproductive health clinic, got its start in 2017 as a chat-based app called “Ask Tia,” which was designed to answer questions about “birth control, sexual health, insurance coverage, and more.”

Building upon the popularity of the app, Tia opened its first physical location in New York City as “a one-stop-shop for women’s health.”  In 2020, due to lockdowns related to COVID-19, Tia expanded its operations to a virtual platform, always with an eye toward providing telemed abortion.

As will be seen in this report, Tia Women’s Health provides contraception and now abortion in a bid to become what appears to be Planned Parenthood 2.0, and it is doing so with the help of the largest Catholic health network in the United States.

Starting this week, Tia is proud to expand our services to include medication abortion through virtual visits to our members in California and New York.#AskTia

This is all in direct contradiction to Catholic Church teachings on these issues, which have remained consistent for decades.

CommonSpirit has more than 1,000 care sites and 140 hospitals across 21 states.

    And anyone is actually shocked by this? Get real. There are NO “Catholic Hospital Systems” in the United States.” Haven’t been for decades. Ever since the attempt to establish Hillary Care, which would demand that all Hospitals provide procured Abortions, the Bishops have been working diligently to form partnerships with abortionists, covering it with the false idea that, since a “Catholic” Hospital can provide a space for the abortions to be done, and as long as someone else is doing the deed, it is perfectly acceptable. They call that, Merely material cooperation. An absolute farce, since when you design a way to make the evil in which you participate look acceptable, you become a formal cooperant. Since the Bishops, the only one’s who have any say in terms of what is a “Catholic Hospital” since the 90’s are down with procured abortion, there is no reason for surprise. They sold out the unborn decades ago in their crusade for socialized medicine. Every “Catholic” system in the U.S. is just one more part of an Amoral/ Immoral medical industry.
