California Attorney General investigates Hoag Hospital’s abortion ban
Southern California Public Radio

The office of Attorney General Kamala Harris is looking into a controversial agreement between Newport Beach’s Hoag Hospital and Catholic hospital, St. Joseph Health.

Under a deal reached earlier this year, the two hospitals are starting a formal affiliation, which means a lot of incoming dollars from St. Joseph will be going to Hoag.

Shortly after forging the new relationship, Hoag announced it would discontinue abortion procedures at the hospital.
