CWN Editor's Note: “Every one of us has a right to our life,” the Irish bishops said in a statement. “It is not given to us by the Constitution of Ireland or by any law ...

There is no later stage in a baby’s development where we can say; ‘up until now the fetus was not a person and now it has become a baby.’”
