    Great article, Peter.

    From her speech:

    “Today even children have now become merchandise . . . we hear now in the public debate: “We have the right to order children in a catalogue, we have the right to rent a woman’s womb, we have the right to deprive a child of a mother or father.” No you don’t. A child is not a right. Is this the freedom we want? No, we don’t want an atomized wold, without gender, without father, without mother, and without nation.”

    What’s not to like? Sounds very Catholic to me. Sounds conservative. Sounds moral. I really noticed nothing that I would consider to be objectionable in my book. What’s all the negativity about?
