The University of California is one of the largest health care providers in the state. We must end religious influence on the health care UC provides.
You should receive the medical care you need, regardless of who you are or where you live. Did you know that your local hospital may deny you essential care based on its religion? In Catholic health care, bishops—not medical providers—set the rules, and medical decisions are based on religious doctrine rather than patient need. Be prepared. Find out which services your hospital won’t provide. Take our 1 minute quiz to Know Your Care.
The ACLU Foundation of California and partners have sued to stop Catholic hospitals from discriminating against transgender people (Minton vs. Dignity Health, Knight vs. St. Joseph Health) and people seeking basic reproductive care (Chamorro vs. Dignity Health). The outcome of these cases will affect people’s access to the care they need. Learn more about these cases and how the courts are responding.
