Trouble in Midland

Back in my old home town, a small Catholic hospital is merging with a much larger general hospital. The upshot? The new, amalgamated hospital will be a Catholic institution. No more birth control counselling, morning-after pills, vasectomies, tubal ligations and abortions.
Seems to be OK with lots of the movers and shakers there, and the holy rollers. "Some services" will no longer be provided.
My question: How would the good people of small-town Ontario react if it was conservative Muslim values being imposed on the majority, rather than conservative Catholic values? The end result for women in the Midland area would be the same.
