I think this is one of the reason religion is becoming less and less popular with younger generations: its inability to think flexibly when special situations arise.

Case in point: the Roman Catholic bishop of Phoenix, Thomas Olmsted, stripped a hospital of its Catholic affiliation Tuesday for performing an abortion last year that doctors said was needed to save the life of the mother.

The hospital's president, Linda Hunt, stated that "The fact that this situation stems from our decision to save a young woman's life is particularly sad."
