The Morning Call, Friday, January 21, 2005
In the opinion piece by Father Bernard O'Connor, OSFS, University president, on the pro-life cause and written in observance of the annual pro-life march, Father O'Connor, calls the pro-life movement "one of the most significant religious events in the history of human kind." He states it "will be remembered for centuries as a defining moment in the religious struggle against secularism." Secularism made a bold move within American culture in the mid-1900s, when the legitimate values of freedom and equality were elevated to the point that they replaced God, says Father. This made way for the "pro-choice" movement and the decision by five Supreme Court justices that a woman had a right to terminate the life of a child without due process of law. Although secularity "will not simply go away," the issue of the origin and destiny of human life has resulted in many religious people giving witness to their belief in God. "I am proud to be counted among their number," says Father.
