A Catholic healthcare network in the U.S. is now covering transgender surgeries in its insurance plan.

The change in policy came after PeaceHealth, a Catholic organization operating ten hospitals in the western U.S., was sued by the ACLU.

Dr. John Brehany is an ethicist at the National Catholic Bioethics Center in Philadelphia and he joins Currents News to discuss the ethics behind the situation.
