In Reply to: Catholic hospital argue that a fetus is not a person by grimgraphix
It is OK for a Catholic school to protest in a court case that religious morality forbids it from funding employee health insurance plans that cover birth control because a sperm and an egg have the potential to become a person.
It is OK for a Catholic hospital to then throw their religious morality away to win a court case by claiming that a fetus is not a person until it is born.
So much for consistency in religious morality. Hopefully though, this will become a precedent used in future court cases where the church wants to claim that a sperm and an egg are people before conception even occurs.
I foresee pharmacists who want to withhold the morning after pill from their customers, damning the lawyers who came up with this strategy and the church which stood aside and let the lawyers win at any cost.
