New FSPA president elected, still no response on latest abortion scandal

A few days ago, the La Crosse Tribune reported that the FSPAs have elected a new president to begin office July 1, 2014. Sister Karen Lueck and her leadership team will need to face the question:

Should abortionists be allowed to work in a Catholic hospital? 

We encourage our supporters to pray for Sister Lueck as well as contact her, petitioning to speak with Mayo administrators in removing abortionist doctors:

Sister Karen Lueck, FSPA
Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration
912 Market St.
La Crosse, WI 54601
P: 608-791-5291
C: 608-797-7926

As soon as I have time I'd like to dive into this further.  Some people honestly don't believe that the FSPA's position is that doctor have a "moral obligation to present abortion as an option" during a high risk pregnancy - although it seems clear from the recent news reports.
After a comprehensive review process, including a review of the Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Healthcare, we are confident that the situation is being handled appropriately from all aspects — morally, medically and legally
There are high profile sisters like Sr. Marlene Weisenbeck (who maybe even single handedly lead to the visitation on the LCWR) who have made their position for abortion rights more clear.  But if the local media will not ask, maybe the sisters issue a statement on their public position on abortion in their health care facility?  Do we have to all have malpractice suits against abortionists working in the hospital to get an answer channeled through the CEO or board?  What if we stopped speaking in code and just made policy decisions like this which affect the community available for us all to understand.

  1. Seriously, what are you expecting? Why should the FSPA deign to answer your question?
    They've never had to before, and you can't force them to. The bishop can, but he's not talking either. You can't force the bishop to answer, either. You can pressure him, but it'll take more than a dozen protesters outside Mayo Health.

    Confirmations are coming up. Why don't you get a hundred people together that will line up in the reception line after EACH Mass and individually ask him one after another? A camcorder might be a handy thing to have.
