Babies are Not for Sale

Sean Savage, co-author of the book “Inconceivable: A Medical Mistake, the Baby We Couldn’t Keep, and Our Choice to Deliver the Ultimate Gift”, challenges the Church’s teachings on IVF and announces his opposition to them in a column he wrote for CNN’s Belief Blog entitled “My Take: Catholic Church should reverse opposition to In-Vitro Fertilization”.

This won’t be happening anytime soon, Sean, because the Church will never endorse the notion that children are commodities which we have the right to purchase. They are gifts from God. This means that you get them via nature, not commerce and that you have neither the right to manufacture them, nor the right to kill them once God sends one your way. They are, in a word, persons, not things.
