... we have this article about infertility treatments from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.  They are talking about "options" for infertile Catholic couples:

Catholic ethicists are divided over whether it's permissible to artificially inseminate a wife with her husband's sperm, she said. Although conservative theologians once rejected the practice, some now say it can be done if the semen is collected during intercourse using a condom with a tiny hole that makes it open to the possibility of conception.

Can you imagine?  I'm usually a big defender of the Catholic Church's position on medical ethics.  But this one is just ridiculous!
