CWN Editor's Note: Leaders of DignityUSA, New Ways Ministry, and the pro-abortion Catholics for Choice have condemned the US bishops’ new Doctrinal Note on the Moral Limits to Technological Manipulation of the Human Body.

The 14-page document, published by the bishops’ Committee on Doctrine, states that “Catholic health care services must not perform interventions, whether surgical or chemical, that aim to transform the sexual characteristics of a human body into those of the opposite sex or take part in the development of such procedures.”

    Under its new leadership, the USCCB is publicly following Christ in a most courageous and daring way. What a breath of fresh air in the U.S. particular Church. This is a most welcome paradigm shift from business as usual. Bold initiatives like this can distinguish the Church from secular and anti-Catholic movements that seek to weaken Christ's presence in the world. Every countenance of evil in the areas of sexual morality and mutilation of the physical body casts an evil shadow on the Church.
