AMSL Dean Approves Jackson Labs's Practices
Milhizer said that Jackson Labs has been "seriously looked at to determine whether its practices are consistent with the Catholic Church’s teaching on different life issues," and that its practices are so consistent.
I guess I didn't realize that research into better contraception methods and supporting human embryo stem cell experimentation were consistent with the teachings of the Catholic Church.
UPDATE: In the comments, "an observer" makes an interesting point: Milhizer is not making any distinction about the sale of land or the activities specifically planned at the Ave Maria Facility. Here, Milhizer is saying that all of the company's practices are consistent with Catholic teaching. Until now, it had only been alleged that the NCBC had no problem with the particularities of Monaghan's land sale, but there was no comment on Jackson Labs's activities as a whole.
So either Milhizer misspoke, or he is referring to a study of Jackson Labs's practices that we don't know about yet, or he is broadly (and perhaps mistakenly) considering the alleged NCBC opinion as a blanket approval of all of Jackson Labs's activities.
