Her elevation to sainthood was unusually widely-covered in the secular media as she is one of the few saints in living memory who was also a public figure, and it has sparked controversy often because of her opposition to abortion and her strong faith standing as underpinnings to her charitable work. However, her own pro-life remarks reveal an internal consistency, rather than deplorable bias.

The problem, it should be evident, does not consist in being unaware of change, but rather in how to cope with it. Teenagers are notorious for underestimating the wisdom of their parents. As Mark Twain famously stated, “When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years.”

The term “pro-life” is generally known to mean opposition to abortion. But anyone who has given the topic much thought knows that it necessarily involves far more. If human life has intrinsic dignity from conception to birth, it clearly continues to have dignity after birth. And that truth has implications for how we act, as individuals and as a society.

Just as the eye is designed to contemplate beauty and look above, just as the body is intended to be clothed in tasteful attire and be attractive, and just as man is created to stand erect and be godlike to rise above the animal level, man’s nature is endowed with shamefacedness to react and revolt against anything that cheapens, debases, or compromises man’s honor, self respect, and uprightness.
