the catholic church argues fetuses arent children

Catholic Health’s lawyers in this case had the chance to set precedent bolstering anti-abortion legal arguments. Instead, they are arguing state law protects doctors from liability concerning unborn fetuses on grounds that those fetuses are not persons with legal rights. As Jason Langley, an attorney with Denver-based Kennedy Childs, argued in one of the briefs he filed for the defense, the court “should not overturn the long-standing rule in Colorado that the term ‘person,’ as is used in the Wrongful Death Act, encompasses only individuals born alive. Colorado state courts define ‘person’ under the Act to include only those born alive. Therefore Plaintiffs cannot maintain wrongful death claims based on two unborn fetuses.”

just another example of why church and state dont mix. the church is willing to sacrifice their morals over money rather than defend them. what a bunch of hypocrites.
its time to just start taxing them. its pretty obvious they are just another profit making outfit

1. The Catholic Church hypocritical?

I'm shocked, shocked I tell you. Apparently someone isn't considered a child under Catholic doctrine until they are old enough to be molested by a Priest.

3. To be fair...

...there IS money at stake here.

You can't expect a little thing like principle to get in the way of that.
