Catholic hospital apologizes for arguing that fetus is not a person : News Headlines - Catholic Culture

  1. Ironic. - I argued on Fr. Longenecker's blog that the hospital was wrong under Catholic moral teaching to take this legal defense. Several Catholic posters (not Fr. Longenecker) defended the hospital and I was in the ironic position as an atheist stating Catholic moral teaching to practicing Catholics.

  2. From the "win this case" stand its the obvious defence since our laws don't afford a fetus personhood in this country until its delivered. From a moral standpoint the view is downright immoral and ignorant of biological reality but has been the argument keeping killing the unborn legal for decades. Any lawyer wanting to win would play that card just as the abortion industry does to justify its killings but I agree a Catholic hospital should not make that morally and logically bankrupt argument nor should Catholics defend using it. We're called to rise above evil.
