Ever Again, Again

Good Bishop Tobin doesn't want Catholic institutions aborting babies. WaPo headline: Bishop bans RI hosps from pro-health reform group.

Sigh. As Mr. W. notes, if this were 1938 Germany, the policy "mustn't gas Jews" would garner the headline: "Bishop bans Catholics from nurturing health of German people."

Meanwhile, in Italy, a baby survived his mother's abortion and was picked out of the trash can alive two days later. Think "that's Italy" if you like, but our President while in the Illinois Senate voted four separate times to ensure such a child must stay in the trash can, yet we all voted him in as the consummate gentleman and scion of hope.
