B16 & Seamless Garment

On the occasion of World Food Day, Pope Benedict XVI said, "The right to life includes freedom from hunger."

I guess no one told the Pontiff that such sentiments risk reviving talk of the "seamless garment" approach to life issues once favored by Cardinal Joseph Bernardin.

Me thinks I hear some gnashing of teeth from the right wing bleachers.
