Rachel Miller for The San Francisco Chronicle

Rachel Miller poses for a portrait at her home in Redding, California, Saturday, August 22, 2015. Mrs. Miller, a Redding lawyer and pregnant mother,  is due to give birth by C-section on Sept. 29 and wants to have her doctor perform a tubal ligation that the hospital, Mercy Medical Center in Redding, refuses to allow because of Catholic doctrine. Her ACLU lawyer says she'll sue if the hospital doesn't change its mind.
