Thanks to the fine editorial work of Margaret Hughes, the Summer 2020 issue of Pro Vita, the newsletter of University Faculty for Life, is now available. Here.
This issue features regular contributions from Father Joe Koterski, Chris Kaczor, and Richard Myers. There is a brief recap of the 2020 annual meeting and the usual collection of news and notes.
In her column, Mary Lemmons (President of University Faculty for Life) notes the theme for our 2021 conference:
“Our overarching theme is Prolife Feminism, the Law, and Women’s Health. This broad topic includes issues surrounding pill-induced abortions, as well as the impact of abortion not only on society, the law, and families, but also on the biological, mental, and spiritual health of women and their partners. Also included is the quest for social policies and laws supportive of pregnancy, embryo rights, fetal well-being, fatherhood, and families. Other topics for this conference include the cultural and legal status of inalienable rights, especially the rights to conscientious objection and to protection from exploitation at the end of life both in the United States as well as around the world.”
