abortion_hypocrisyWell.  I’m glad to see the Catlicks coming around on such an important issue to women and their rights.  This is an object lesson for the deluded pro-life movement.  Your fetus worshipping is useful for whipping up the frenzy and getting people all frothy, but when serious issues come, its time for you to sit the frack down and shut the frack up on cue while the adults talk about the serious issues.

From the Alter.net article

[…]

And all of this—all of it—goes back to the Church’s insistence that life begins with your very first hell-worthy dirty thought and must be protected at all costs, despite all consequences, including, of course, the consequence of dead women, whose lives are not nearly as valuable as the “life” of an unborn fetus. In just the past year, the Church has called upon its faithful followers to march, to starve themselves, to go to jail, to even take up arms—all to protect those fetuses. No exceptions. None. Not if the fetus is already dead inside the womb. Not if the fetus is going to kill the actual living woman carrying it. No goddamned exceptions EVER.

Well, except for one: when it’s going to cost the Church money.

Turns out, when a man sues a Catholic hospital for malpractice because his wife and the twins she was carrying inside her died when she turned up in the emergency room and her doctor never bothered to answer a page—well, things get a little tricky. Yes, the Catholic hospital adheres to the strict Ethical and Religious Directives of the Catholic Church, as set forth by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. And yes, those directives include the claim that “[t]he Church’s defense of life encompasses the unborn” and a mandate to uphold “the sanctity of life ‘from the moment of conception until death.'” But come  on. That obviously does not apply when Catholic Health Initiatives, the Church-affiliated organization that runs the Church-affiliated St. Thomas More Hospital where a young woman and her two unborn fetuses died, is the lead defendant in a lawsuit:

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.”

Thank you, counselor, for totally undermining everything the Catholic Church has ever said about women and health care and fetuses and the “sanctity of life,” just to save a buck, thereby confirming how very empty and meaningless all that rhetoric really is. Praise the Lord.

    The government should not impose its values on the people of American, unless of course, its christian religious values.  I wonder if anyone in the GOP has read George Orwell’s 1984, because they certainly seem to be running from the same playbook as the Party….

Jon Stewart and the Daily Show once again bring to light the blatant hypocrisy of the godbag infested GOP.

 

Sean makes some great points, let me reiterate them.  Why are parents allowed to watch their child die because they believe in magic?  Christian Science and faith healing are utter bullshite and yet they continue to torture children, often to death, because of their mysticism.  The Christian Right then gets a seismic stiffy over universal healthcare and the fatuous notion of death panels, while they say NOTHING about those who choose to let their children die from treatable ailments.  Where is the outcry from the religious pro-lifers?  Oh well it doesn’t involve stripping away female bodily autonomy and it is murder in a religiously approved away so it must not count.

Frak Off.

The hypocrisy of the religious right is appalling.  They should never be regarded as a source of moral guidance on any issue, ever.
