Colorado Attorney General backs hospitals' sale despite church conflict

The Denver Post, December 31, 2007

The opinion sparked an outcry from community organizations opposing the loss of services such as abortions, forms of sterilization including tubal ligation and vasectomies, and emergency contraception pills.
