Catholic hospital to merge with abortion provider in NY

The new abortion center that will be located in this southeastern New York city will see construction begin next week. The Foxhall Ambulatory Surgery Center abortion facility was slated to be open by the end of the year but likely won't begin doing abortions until early 2009.
The Kingston and Benedictine hospitals are completing a merger and that will result in the building of a center doing abortions and legitimate medical services.
Michael Kaminski, the chief executive officer of Kingston Hospital, said a groundbreaking ceremony will be held at the construction site on Monday morning at 8:00 a.m.

SO in effect, Benedictine Hospital will open a death camp. Is that what the religious who founded that hospital envision? Here are the USCCB guideines for Catholic hospitals:
Issues in Care for the Beginning of Life
The Church's commitment to human dignity inspires an abiding concern for the sanctity of human life from its very beginning, and with the dignity of marriage and of the marriage act by which human life is transmitted. The Church cannot approve medical practices that undermine the biological, psychological, and moral bonds on which the strength of marriage and the family depends.

This is outrageous! How dare they call themselves a "Catholic" hospital!

This hospital is obviously not under the jurisdiction of the diocese or is it?

Just carried this information over from Father Joe's site. Please post this as you feel appropriate:

"Two of America’s largest pro-abortion groups are spending $10,000,000 each to influence the November elections at all levels of government. Those two groups are Planned Parenthood and NARAL

to help counter this you can mail a donation to:

God has called you to fulfill one of the most critical and important missions in the fight to end abortion … namely the task of funding the fight."
