Mercy Sister Margaret McBride speaks out in her silence

 |  NCR Today

The media is getting on to Sr. Margaret McBride who has refused to speak to the media and, as a result, has been speaking loud and clearly every day since she was told by Phoenix Bishop Thomas Olmsted that she had been excommunicated for her participation in a hospital ethics-committee decision to abort an 11-week-old fetus in order to save a mother's life.

When less if more, silence can be clear and overwhelming.

Now some in the media are getting McBride's message -- and and are beginning to write about what she has to say. .
