    I don't think anyone is suggesting them did anything illegal, however, they Catholic Church presents and markets itself as the embodiment of moral righteousness when they are anything but. The hypocrisy and callousness that they have shown in this incident should be taken as indicative of their true morals.

    To clarify, the Catholic Church hasn't done anything wrong/different here. A hospital has engaged a legal argument which goes against the Catholic Church's teachings. Church doctrine says those twins were real people for seven months before any of this tragedy happened.

    The hospital doesn't in any way speak for the Catholic Church.

    I'm not sure of a circumstance when the Catholic Church is not prolife after birth? Their bioethics stances are pretty consistent from what I've read?

    The hospital doesn't in any way speak for the Catholic Church.
    The hospital was established as a Catholic hospital, thereby calling on the teachings of the Vatican to determine it's values, behaviours etc. In doing so it attached itself to the institution of the Catholic Church. I would regard any institution or organisation (school, hospital, care home, etc) that calls itself "Catholic" as part of the Catholic Church institution. This is just another incident of a religious organisation cherry picking the parts of their religious doctrine that suits them and ignoring the rest.

    I'd love to hear what the Vatican has to say about this incident.

    I totally agree, seems we can both see that this hospital has gone against church teaching. The hospital may have done something morally questionnaire, but we obviously both know they don't speak for the church.

    Headoverfeet I don't want to leave your post unacknowledged, but I'm not sure I see the relevance to this thread. The article you posted does not mention the Catholic Church, in fact she states at the start that she was raised in an evangelical household (usually means Protestant?).
    The prolife movement attempts to empower women to make reproductive choices in a way which facilitates life, not through abortifacient methods. Am happy to have this discussion elsewhere, but I imagine that would take this thread quite off topic if we go into further detail here.

    Of course the hospital doesn't speak for the Vatican but they are both part of "the institution of the Catholic Church" and these actions are indicative of the moral corruptness of that institution.
