Catholic university investigates prof over pro-life lecture




Published on Jun 2, 2017

June 1, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – The young professor facing termination from his job at Belgium's Catholic University of Louvain for showing his students pro-life arguments says he doesn't fear for his future because "Our Lord is eternally victorious."

Stéphane Mercier, who is currently under "investigation" by the Belgian university, spoke to LifeSiteNews at the 2017 Rome Life Forum. He revealed that his inspiration for the lecture that caused so much backlash was articles he read on LifeSiteNews.

"It’s thanks to LifeSiteNews that I felt somewhat compelled to say a few things to my students about the truth about abortion," he said. "Your work has determined me in the best of ways."

He says he wondered "what would I say on the day of judgment, when the Lord will ask me, 'what have you done with your teaching activity?'"

"I’ve done quite a few interesting things in my opinion, but nothing that really matters from an existential point of view," Mercier explained. "And so, I thought that I should speak about human dignity."
