Elizabeth Sepper and James D. Nelson will discuss Government Religious Hospitals:
American governments are not supposed to own or operate religious institutions. But they do. Across the country, states run hospitals that enforce religious doctrine. The origins of these hospitals lie at the intersection of dramatic transformations in healthcare’s political economy and in Religion Clause doctrine.
