Kathleen Gilbert and I attended our first ever Pontifical Academy for Life Assembly in Rome last weekend. We did not expect all the controversy that occurred which you will read about in Kathleen’s Wednesday report. The conference held much promise regarding the growing problem of infertility in both the developing and developed world.
However, something went very wrong last weekend, as has happened a number of times in the past few years with the PAV due to decisions by its clergy leadership. Hopefully, our report will help Vatican authorities to finally end these recurring problems within this much needed Academy initiated by Pope John Paul II that deals with the all-important life issues.
Note that we have added an interesting brief audio recording (middle of story) of a few lively excerpts from the Q&A at the end of the conference.
