Catholic Hospital Enables Last Abortion Facility in South Texas to Remain Open.

Crazy! What the heck?

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – Controversy is brewing in Texas over a Catholic-run hospital that is accused of enabling the last remaining abortion facility in South Texas to remain open.

Under a recent Texas law that took affect in November, those who perform abortions are required to obtain admitting privileges at a local hospital within a 30-mile radius. However, Christus Spohn Hospital in Corpus Christi has reportedly already been granting admitting privileges to abortionist Eduardo Aquino for decades, enabling his Coastal Birth Control Center— the last remaining abortion facility in the area—to remain open.

According to reports, 20 abortion facilities in Texas have closed their doors—or have announced their impending closure—as a result of being unable to meet the new requirement. Local pro-life leaders hope that Aquino’s facility joins that number, and are outraged that a Catholic institution is providing cover for an abortion provider.

“The biggest issue is the fact that they do claim to be … Catholic, and yet they’re walking hypocritically according to what they state by enabling abortion,” said Pastor of Sovereign Grace Community Church, Daniel Sem.


In response to criticism, Christus Spohn issued a statement asserting that their hospital is not committing any wrongdoing.

“Christus Spohn is committed to protecting the value of all life and does not perform abortions,” it told local television station KRIS-TV.

Christus’ “Core Values” statement on their website states that it endeavors to provide “[r]espect for the worth of every person, recognition and commitment to the value of diverse individuals and perspectives, and special concern for the poor and underserved.”

However, some Catholics in the state contend that Christus Spohn is violating it’s own values through its alliance with Aquino.

“No comparison line by line, word by word, of these three Statements is needed to demonstrate the utter consummate hypocrisy of allowing abortionist Aquino to have admitting privileges at a Christus Hopsital,” wrote Dr. Guy McClung, a Catholic leader from San Antonio, in an open letter. “You must realize that without the admitting privileges you extend to abortionist Aquino, this racially targeted abortion business would shut down due to the new Texas law, passed out of concern for the safety and well-being of mothers put at risk by abortion procedures.”

    How did this happen? Heads should roll (no pun intended; metaphorically speaking) over this!

    Always have before you Ephesians 5:11: “Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.”

    The complete text of my Open Letter to Christus Spohn Hospital is here: 2014/ 04/ 12/ dr-guy-mcclung-has-writen-an-open-letter-addressed-to-spohn-hospital- in-corpus-christi/ – … ABYSSUS ABYSSUM INVOCAT / DEEP CALLS TO DEEP … In an open letter to Catholic Christus Hospitals of Texas, Dr. Guy McClung of San Antonio … Statement Three below is from Christus Spohn Hospital Corpus Christi …

    Do not lose sight of the fact – and actually it should be stressed – note the Caller Times and the Corpus Christi TV station fail to mention – that the Aquino Abortion Bus$ine$ss is a racially targeted business. It is intentionally in a minority neighborhood. There are mornings when 12 young girls go in and by the end of the day 12 Hispanic babies are killed. Do the math: 55,000,000 dead babies in the USA since Roe v Wade created the so-called “right to abortion.” Of these, about 60% were minority babies-about 29,000,000 Black and Hispanic holy innocents. Imagine what another 20,000 Hispanic voters would mean to Corpus Christi? Thank the deathly DERTA policy that these children can never live here or exercise the right to vote. [“Deathly DERTA”: Deathly Democrat Eugenic Racially Targeted Abortion policy]. Here is an item about the “shocking theological silence” of both Protestant and Catholic theologians not only about abortion, but their appalling failure to address their silence about racially targeted abortions as go on weekly in Corpus Christi:
    NCRegister | Letters 05.18.14
    National Catholic Register…May 12, 2014 – In his article, Father Massingale uses such words and phrases as “deafening and … There is no discussion of, nor recognition of, the well-documented racially targeted abortion businesses in the United States. .

    Rejoice in all things. As JM Escriva said, “God does not lose battles.” He will most certainly win this one and we must pray that, knowing that this will happen in God’s time, that He hurry up. Guy McClung, San Antonio
