These are the reproductive and LGBTQ-inclusive services that are restricted at Catholic-affiliated hospitals:

  • Abortion, which is interpreted broadly in Catholic-affiliated hospitals and can include:
    • Safest treatment for ectopic pregnancy
    • Safest treatment for miscarriages
  • In-vitro fertilization
  • Complete information and care for people with cancer or other health conditionswhose treatment could affect current or future pregnancies

*This list is based on policies of Catholic-affiliated hospitals in California; it is not specific to the hospital in your area. Some Catholic-affiliated hospitals interpret Catholic restrictions differently than others, so restricted care may vary.


Now that you know, make sure others do, too.
