Life & Death in South Bend

Notre Dame’s Culture of Death Conference

by Patrick Henry Reardon

Sponsored by Notre Dame’s Center for Ethics & Culture, a conference entitled “A Culture of Death” was conducted on that campus from October 12th to 14th this past year, bringing together an impressive array of speakers well known in several areas of concern conveniently lumped together as “pro-life”: abortion, fetal tissue research, euthanasia, warfare, and capital punishment, along with such related subjects as care for the disabled, Third World debt, and (brace yourself) feminism. The event included four plenary presentations and 15 concurrent sessions, some of these with several short papers.
