These Dignity/CHI hospitals do not permit the use of contraception, in vitro fertilization (IVF), sperm or egg donors, surrogate pregnancies, or abortion.
These policies severely restrict reproductive healthcare and eliminate the ability of LGBTQ people to conceive a biologic child. Catholic healthcare facilities also interpret the Religious Directives to prohibit the delivery of gender affirming services (such as hormone treatment, hysterectomy, and mastectomy) to transgender people.
We believe these anti-LGBTQ and anti-reproductive health policies directly conflict with UC's core values to provide high quality, evidence-based care in an environment free of bias and discrimination.
