‘Pro-life’ should mean all life
- Posted on September 19th, 2012 filed in Newspaper
Dr. Nancy Dallavalle, chair of the Department of Religious Studies, wrote an op-ed that appeared in the newspapers: “Pro-life”? Representative Todd Akin’s assertion that a raped woman, if raped viciously enough, will not get pregnant, is false. His subsequent claim that he “misspoke” is also false. This was a well-rehearsed view; this was no momentary gaffe.
