"Pro-Life Aristotle"

In the Corner, Katherine Jean Lopez interviews professor Christopher Kaczor of Loyola Marymont University. They discuss his new book, The Ethics of Abortion: Women’s Rights, Human Life, and the Question of Justice.

"I know that many women face unbelievably difficult circumstances in their pregnancy. For this reason, I think that all people of good will have an obligation to help them, to celebrate their heroism when they choose life, and to love them even when they do not. I can think of one case in particular: a young student, not yet finished with her education, who found herself pregnant with a man she did not know well. With so many responsibilities, both to her extended family and to her studies, she felt desperate, alone, and trapped. It was truly an act of heroism for that woman to decide to place that child for adoption. I know the woman in the story very well. She is my birth mother."
