Center for Ethics and Culture Public Policy Fellow Dr. Mary O'Callaghan was a guest on EWTN's Morning Glory radio program on Friday, April 15, discussing abortion protection for babies receiving prenatal diagnoses of various disabilities. Such legislation is consistent with the protections guaranteed in the Americans with Disabilities Act, said O'Callaghan, the difference being that, "we're not just talking about failure to build a wheelchair ramp, we're talking about total exclusion from society, from life itself, based on a single characteristic of a child."
