Stories like these don't help the cause of U.S. women religious currently under investigation by the Vatican for allegedly supporting radical liberal causes:
Sister Donna Quinn, a long-time feminist and social justice activist, has been reprimanded by her order, the Wisconsin-based Sinsinawa Domincans, for escorting patients into a Hinsdale, Illinois clinic that provides abortions, The Chicago Tribune reports.
Online news site ChicagoCatholicNews speculates that the three bishops involved--Cardinal Francis George of Chicago, where Quinn lives; Bishop J. Peter Sartain of Joliet, where the clinic is located; and Bishop Robert Morlino of Madison, Wisconsin, where the order is based--are "monitoring the situation" and expect to talk soon.
