Healthcare: their way or highway? | Letters

June 26, 2013 · Updated 3:30 PM

Since the Catholic church has been unable to mandate women’s healthcare reproductive rights using the ballot box in the state of Washington, they’ve brought out their big guns: check books.

The idea is they buy controlling interest in a local hospital. Woman then must comply with male religious mandates or go elsewhere.

It’s sort of like the selfish boy on the playground who owns the only ball and says, “Play by my rules or go to another playground.”
