Pueblo, Colo., Jun 10, 2010 / 14:17 pm
A Catholic hospital in rural Colorado has the region’s only abortionist on its staff, a pro-life activist has claimed. In response, the Diocese of Pueblo said the hospital is in “full compliance” with Catholic directives and the abortionist’s employment at the hospital is protected by federal law. However, conversations are “ongoing.”
Gualberto Garcia Jones, a director of the group Personhood Colorado, charged in an article at the citizen journalism site called the Denver Independent Examiner that Mercy Medical Center is employing Dr. Richard Grossman, even though he provides abortions at his private practice.
Grossman is listed as an obstetrics/gynecology specialist on a page at the medical center’s website titled “MRMC Medical Staff” and in a link titled “Need a Physician?” The link refers to a document titled “Provider Roster,” which bears the hospital’s name.
Grossman’s listed address and phone number are identical to those of the Four Corners OBGYN office.
