Catholic hospital reverses on fetus death, saying defense is "morally wrong"

There's a big development tonight in a story we've been following -  A Catholic hospital's surprising defense in a wrongful death case involving unborn twin fetuses.

Lori Stodghill was 7 months pregnant when she went into cardiac arrest. Lori and the twins died. When her husband sued, the catholic hospital argued that the fetuses were not "people" under Colorado law.

But tonight, the hospital, in a surprising about-face, called its own defense "morally wrong".

CNN's Kyung Lah has the story.
