Dr. Edmund Pellegrino died yesterday at 92. Dr. Pellegrino was the recipient of University Faculty for Life’s Smith Award for distinguished contributions to pro-life scholarship. Here is a link to a brief comment that I posted on the Mirror of Justice blog. http://mirrorofjustice.blogs.com/mirrorofjustice/2013/06/dr-edmund-pellegrino-rip.html
Dr. Pellegrino was a giant in the field of bioethics and he influenced many with his voluminous writings and his example. His passing is a great loss.
