From pharmacists who refuse to dispense Plan B drugs (which prevent ovulation) to legislation designed to limit a patient's end-of-life or euthanasia options, there's no shortage of controversial topics in America today when it comes to religion/morality overlapping with science/medicine. On this edition of ST, we discuss such a topic as we confront certain practices of some Catholic hospitals.
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt has appealed a ruling that struck down a law requiring women seeking abortions to have an ultrasound image placed in front of them and listen to a description of the fetus before the procedure is performed.
Pruitt filed an appeal of Oklahoma County District Judge Bryan Dixon's decision with the Oklahoma Supreme Court Thursday.
Dixon ruled the law is unconstitutional because it addresses only patients, physicians and sonographers who deal with abortions. He rejected Pruitt's request to reconsider his decision.
