Catholic Hospital in Colorado Malpractice Defense – “Fetuses Are Not People”

Once again, Catholic morality is a kaleidoscope like  measure of convenience and or the bottom line.

His patient died at the hospital less than an hour after she arrived and her twins died in her womb. 
After Stoghill's death, Lori's husband Jerry filed a wrongful death suit against St. Thomas Moore Hospital in Cañon City, claiming that Dr. Staples should have at least instructed ER personnel to perform an emergency C-section. 
Jerry's suit states that the hospital's negligence resulted the deaths of three individuals — his wife, and his two unborn but post-viability sons. 
In response, Catholic Health Initiatives, the nonprofit that runs St. Thomas Moore and 170 other healthcare facilities, claimed that Jerry Stoghill has no grounds to sue them for the loss of three lives, as unborn people aren't technically "persons" under Colorado law.
