Default Catholic hospital takes surprise stance in lawsuit

Catholic hospital takes surprise stance in lawsuit - Yahoo! News

****It was a startling assertion that seemed an about-face from church doctrine: A Catholic hospital arguing in a Colorado court that twin fetuses that died in its care were not, under state law, human beings.*****

Oh the hypocrisy of the Catholic church.

Feti are people......... unless it's going to cost them, then they aren't!

Did you read your own article?...

Quote:
When the two-year-old court filing surfaced last month, it triggered an avalanche of criticism — because the legal argument seemed to plainly clash with the church's centuries-old stance that life begins at conception.

But it is also now fueling an already raging debate in Colorado and beyond about whether fetuses should have legal rights and, if so, what kind.

On Monday, the hospital and the state's bishops released a statement acknowledging it was "morally wrong" to make the legal argument.

...Indeed, last week Colorado's bishops met with executives at Catholic Healthcare Initiatives, a branch of the church that operates the hospital at the center of the case, to review how the lawsuit was handled. The two released separate statements Monday saying CHI executives had been unaware of the legal arguments and pledging to "work for comprehensive change in Colorado's law, so that the unborn may enjoy the same legal protections as other persons."

...In their Monday statement, Denver Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila, Colorado Springs Bishop Michael Sheridan and Pueblo Bishop Fernando Isern said: "Catholic healthcare institutions are, and should, be held to the high standard of Jesus Christ himself."

They and CHI pledged not to argue against fetal personhood further in the case. They also said they and CHI sympathize with the Stodghill family.
The hospital's LEGAL department proceeded with a defense that the RELIGIOUS side was unaware of...

And, showing no hypocrisy whatsoever, denounced it when it was found out, declared it "morally wrong" to make that case, and "pledged not to argue against fetal personhood further in the case"...

If anything, you can accuse the left hand of not knowing what the right hand was doing, but to declare it hypocrisy is flat out wrong...When the "the Catholic Church" realized what the "Catholic hospital" did, they put a stop to it...

Yeah, they said it was 'morally wrong'. Two years later and only after it became public.

I'm so sure they were 'unaware'. Just like they were 'unaware' that priests were diddling little boys.

So you are accusing them of lying. Please present proof

May I suggest a closer read of the article. There is no hypocrisy.

Can you provide proof of your assertions? If not, they don't fly.

You realize that if you could tie that legal defense to Obama, nobody on the right would be asking for any evidence whatsoever...
In fact, in that case Obama probably performed a couple abortions himself...

But since it's the Catholic church, who has only engaged in DECADES long efforts to hide sexual molestation within their own ranks, THEY must be assumed blameless...

It's not outside the realm of reality that a legal team took off with a defense and the priests and diocese bishops knew nothing about it.

And it was outside the realm of reality that Obama shot a gun at Camp David?
Oh look. Somebody actually came forward with a picture of that too...

The point is two different standards employed.
If this had been Obama, you guys would have convicted him already...

I am sorry. I was unaware that this thread had anything to do with Obama. Perhaps you could explain to me where Obama was mentioned in the article or how Obama relates to the legal defense the attorneys mounted on behalf of the Catholic Hospital and the diocese's subsequent repudiation of that defense?
