What is this all about?

“The reason I perform abortions is because I’m a Christian"
- Dr. Richard Grossman

Mercy Regional Medical Center is a Catholic Hospital located in Durango Colorado and was founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1882. Mercy's longest serving physician is Doctor Richard Grossman.

Grossman is a man who for years has had the luxury of making a living at a Catholic Hospital in the field of Obstetrics/Gynecology, delivering hundreds of babies over the course of his long career. However, as a result of his presence in the Four Corners region of Colorado thousands of babies have also been murdered by Grossman at Planned Parenthood, where he works one day a week as an abortionist.

While Mercy Hospital claims it is in full compliance with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services Directives, one can easily see that Directive #45 states -

"....Catholic health care institutions are not to provide abortion services, even based upon the principle of material cooperation. In this context, Catholic health care institutions need to be concerned about the danger of scandal in any association with abortion providers.”

The scandal of Grossman’s presence at Mercy has angered the local faithful Catholic and Christian community for years.

Newspaper article imageIn addition to murdering babies, Grossman also publishes a highly visible monthly column in the largest local newspaper publication The Durango Herald called “Population Matters”. In his monthly column Grossman openly promotes eugenics, promiscuity, contraception, abortion (“family planning”), and frequently bashes the Catholic Church.

We are asking everyone to please sign the petition (TAKE ACTION page) to express your desire to have this man removed from having “privileges” to practice at Mercy Regional Medical Center.

If it infuriates you that a man who is so openly anti-Catholic both in actions, and in words, can make a living at an institution run by the Church then please sign the petition, forward it to your friends, and join us August 4th with Catholic Pro Life Leader Lila Rose of Live Action to protest Mercy Hospital.
