"Cure for prenatal homosexuality?

NAPLES, Florida -- The provost of Ave Maria University and publisher of Ignatius Press, Father Joseph Fessio, S.J., has expressed support for an article written by the president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary suggesting that it would be "biblically justified" to try to change in utero the sexual orientation of fetuses with biological markers for homosexuality.

"Same-sex activity is considered disordered," Fessio said, according to the Associated Press. "If there are ways of detecting diseases or disorders of children in the womb, and a way of treating them that respected the dignity of the child and mother, it would be a wonderful advancement of science."
