At first blush, this story about a Colorado Hospital arguing that a fetus is not a person, in a court suit for wrongful death in the case of two unborn children who died with their mother, seems like the rankest of hypocrisies, or, to put a kinder face on it, another instance of Church leaders granting too much authority to their lawyers.  And, the bishops of Colorado are looking into the matter.
