‘One of the fundamental teachings of the Catholic Church is that all human life – whether born or unborn – is sacred. And yet, the second-largest Catholic health provider in the United States has blatantly contradicted this doctrine during the wrongful death lawsuit that Jeremy Stodghill brought against them.

This baffling turnaround has seen the Catholic Church put a legal argument that a fetus should not be considered a person until it is actually born.

…Regardless of where you stand on religion, the hypocrisy in this case is staggering. How can the Catholic Church use their doctrine on respect for human life to oppose abortion, and yet refuse to recognise the rights of an unborn child?’

  2. I didn’t know about this case. I agree there’s too much hypocrisy in religion.
