Little Sisters Of The Poor Refuse Contraception

The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals’ rejection of the request by the Little Sisters of the Poor for religious exemption recalls the story of a young couple that finds a package outside their front door.

Inside is a wooden box with a button unit attached. A Mr. Steward arrives with this proposition — push the button and receive a financial windfall. In addition, he says, “somewhere in the world someone you don’t know will die.”

The wife is intrigued: It will mean travel, a vacation home, the means to start a family. As for the person who dies, it could be “an old Chinese peasant” or “a diseased native in the Congo.”
