Pro-environment, pro-life: Why is it that so often the two are at odds with one another? This year’s Earth Day lecture will be a roundtable discussion highlighting the links between pro-environment and pro-life, or – to use Pope Benedict XVI’s terms – between natural ecology and human ecology. Sister Damien Marie Savino, FSE, Chair of the Environmental Science and Studies Department at the University of St. Thomas, will comment on Pope Benedict’s notions of natural and human ecology.
Mrs. Kim Broussard, Certified Fertility Care Practitioner and Director of FertilityCare in Fort Bend, will discuss Natural Family Planning as “The Green Option.” Finally, UST student and Environmental Studies-Theology double major Marcus Walden will comment on his own pro-environment, pro-life convictions..
