Here's an infuriating story to rile up your blood pressure. Sister Margaret McBride, who is a nun and hospital administrator, was just excommunicated for approving an abortion for a woman who would likely have died had she continued her pregnancy. The church's position, of course, would be to let both the woman and fetus die.
On NPR today, Rev. John Ehrich, the medical ethics director for the Diocese of Phoenix, compared Sister McBride helping save a woman's life to priests molesting children:
"She said 'Yes you can kill that unborn child.' That's a heinous act. And I'm not gonna make a distinction between what's worse, you know---they're both abhorrent."
This is just so disgusting it's almost unbelievable. You can't make this shit up! Why does the Catholic church keep doing this to themselves? And to date, no pedophile priests have been excommunicated. Keep protecting the child-raping priests. But a nun who okays an abortion for a woman who would otherwise die---nope, get rid of her evil ass!
