Why UFL?

Frank Beckwith notes the following article: “The Great Conservative Mistake,” by Mark Bauerlein.┬áThis may seem off topic, since being pro-life isn’t about being conservative or liberal, but I think it applies to pro-life faculty matatis mutandis. Our job is to do scholarship well. Our successes will be in pointing out the bad scholarship of those who promote abortion, euthanasia, and infanticide in the academy and among students, not in labeling them, no matter how accurate the labels are! If we can point out their “ncompetence” and “ignorance” we’ve gone a long way to fulfilling our primary avocation–scholarship on behalf of life.
