There are two questions I would like every cardinal, bishop, priest, theologian and opinion-shaper in my Roman Catholic community to answer, publicly, unequivocally and honestly.

1. Do you believe that from the first moment of conception there is present a new human person, defined as the unity of a material body and a spiritual soul?

2. Does the Roman Catholic Church officially teach that there is present from conception such a true human person?

The answer to the second question, unfortunately, must be no. We see the consequences all around us.
