Nun is rebuked for condoning abortion. On Saturday Arizona Republic newspaper reported that Sister Margaret McBride an administrator at a Catholic hospital in Phoenix has been rebuked by the local bishop.
MSNBC reported that the Catholic Church does not condone abortions except from secondary effects of other treatments like radiation of a cancerous fetus.
The state of Arizona is becoming a hotbed full of controversy.
Last month they passed the immigration law allowing police to stop any one suspected of being an immigrant and now a nun is rebuked for condoning a abortion that saved a life of a patient. Is the law and Catholic Church going to far in trying to control the actions of others?
Several months ago Sister Margaret McBride was apart of a ethics committee who consulted with a pregnant female patient who needed to have an abortion performed in order to save her life.
Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted, head of the Phoenix Diocese Archbishop said any Catholic who participated in an abortion is automatically ex-communicated.
The decision to rebuked Sister McBride stirred up many heated discussions and tweets on twitter.
