Catholic Exchange: Bill O’Reilly’s False Facts of Life

“In his defense, O’Reilly states, “I cannot run this program based on my religious beliefs, so I try to put up arguments based on facts.” Yet this is a curious contradiction. If it is simply factual to state that the fetus is not human, how is it religious to state that the fetus is human? If factual evidence can show that the fetus is not human, why can’t factual evidence also show the contrary? In truth, the humanity of the preborn child is not a question of religious belief, but rather a question of reason and evidence. Moreover, as we have seen, the facts stand firmly on the side of the humanity of the unborn.”
