Wiggle Room

Apparently the Catholic church DOES have some wiggle room when it comes to deciding if a fetus is a person.

I already KNEW that the story was full of crap when I saw that it came from Daily Kooks, but damn... talk about one lie after another. I don't think they got a single solitary fact right. Amazing.

T-boy trying to IGNORE the referenced facts of the article by using a tried old right wing tactic of attacking the messenger when the facts aren't working for his extreme ideological position, like he does here.


In malpractice case, Catholic hospital argues fetuses aren’t people


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.”


See T-boy the original facts of the case didn't come from the Daily Kos, but reporting on a ongoing malpractice case the Catholic Church is involved in.

Too bad the links still work, and your tired old dismissal doesn't, eh T-boy?
