Pro-lifers in LaCrosse, Wisconsin want a hospital to fire some doctors if the doctors refuse to honor the faith of the hospital.

The situation involves a hospital owned by the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration, although it is administered by officials from the Mayo Clinic. Brian Gibson of Pro-Life Action Ministries tells OneNewsNow.

“Physicians from Rochester, Minnesota, are coming over to the hospital to work in the hospital, and three of those who are coming over are abortionists,” he explains. 

Hospital officials say the abortionists don't terminate baby's lives or refer patients for abortions while working at the hospital, so they won't fire them. Gibson says the hospital is condoning abortion by having them on staff, despite its Catholic identity. Meanwhile, Gibson says the situation could be resolved if the abortionists repented and gave up the killing of preborn babies.

“That is the most important thing to try and seek to do in the first place,” Gibson says. “Direct interaction and contact has been made. The call to repent, the call to conversion, has certainly been put forward in very clear and strong ways on several occasions.”

But so far there has been no word of repentance from the abortionists. Meanwhile, as many as 100 prolife demonstrators at a time have been at the hospital hoping for a more positive response from the hospital and the church.
