Hospital fights transgender discrimination claim

NEW JERSEY (BP) -- A Catholic hospital in New Jersey faces a lawsuit for allegedly refusing to remove the uterus of a woman who wants to be anatomically more like a man. Jionni Conforti, 33, filed suit against St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center of Paterson, N.J., on Jan. 5 in federal court. Conforti, who is biologically female but identifies as male, brought suit under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) because St. Joseph's refused to remove Conforti's uterus on the grounds that doing so would violate the Catholic teaching that God made people male and female.
