It's not just that catholic hospitals don't want to be involved with contraception, abortion, and the like. They also have a tendency of being extremely unaccommodating toward queer people. For instance, they still won't allow same-sex spouses to see their hurt partner. They used to hide under the guise that they aren't legally married, but that's no longer an option where I live--but they still do it anyway. They also don't allow treatment for transgender people. I have to drive an half and a half to get to a clinic that isn't affiliated with the catholic church to go to a doctor that supports transgender people.
