I had quite an adventure last week. Four flights. An unprecedented heat wave. Almost 133,000 steps. Close to 20 lectures by experts in their fields. About 50 new friends. And last but not least, a Covid infection!
Thankfully, I picked up a lot more than Covid at the Vita Institute, a conference for pro-life leaders at the University of Notre Dame. I expect I will be writing about this truly amazing experience for a long time, but while it’s still fresh in my mind, here are three things I learned:
- There is no such thing as a fertilized egg. (The union of egg and sperm is an entirely new cell that behaves completely differently from an egg, and this tiny human life is properly called a zygote.)
- Roe v. Wade is bad law. (And not because of what it legalized.)
- Pro-life leaders are a diverse group. (I plan to introduce you to many of them later–and if you believe the lie that they are all old white Republican men who hate women and don’t care about babies after they are born, prepare to be very surprised!)
Much more to come! The Institute was a blessing and I want to share every bit of it with you.
