Daily Kos: A fetus is not a person if it costs us money, says Catholic Church
Just a few months ago in America the Catholic Church sent it's representatives to Congress to argue that life begins at conception, just like they are arguing here, and that unborn children are still children with the same rights as everyone else.
Well, turns out the Church is now arguing just the opposite.
A woman who was pregnant with twins had some difficulty and went to a Catholic hospital where her doctor was supposed to be. He never answered his page, left her in the A&E for some time, and the twins died.
Now the family is suing the Church, as the Church owns and operates the hospital. And what are the lawyers for the Church arguing? A fetus is NOT a person, it has NO rights, and therefore they cannot be sued.
It appears the 'rights' of the unborn only exist when it is convenient for certain people. If money is involved, then feck 'em, they are just fetuses.
