My viewpoint is that as long as the hospital receives any government funding, there should be no religious affiliation.
However, if the hospital is 100% privately funded, then my viewpoint is that they are free to do whatever they want - including not performing abortions, sprinkling holy water on all patients, etc. The only cavaet would be that they would be required to accept any and all patients for emergency services without any religious requirements.
The line is at what point does government interfere with the rights of both religious and non-religious groups.
