Pontifical Academy for Life stirs the pot

VATICAN (SE): Nigel Biggar, a philosopher and professor of moral and pastoral theology at Oxford University and a proponent of legal abortion up to 18 weeks into pregnancy, is among the 45 new appointments to the Pontifical Academy for Life.
 
Biggar is on record as saying, “I would be inclined to draw the line for abortion at 18 weeks after conception, which is roughly about the earliest time when there is some evidence of brain activity, and therefore of consciousness.”
