Minton v. Dignity Health Mercy San Juan Medical Center @ACLU (USA)

Evan-Michael-Minton-transgender-catholic-hospital-hysterectomy

A woman named Evan Michael Minton is suing Mercy San Juan Medical Center, a Catholic hospital, because the hospital did not want to perform a hysterectomy on her to advance the fiction that she is a man. Another hospital in the same hospital system later did perform the surgery. Minton claims that Catholic doctrine oppresses her and causes her damage. Minton, through her counsel, the American Civil Liberties Union, fails to note that the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution guarantees freedom of religion to all people.
