That’s according to Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, head of the Pontifical Academy for Life, in defending the appointment of Nigel Biggar, an Oxford University professor of theology. Biggar came under criticism over his apparent support for abortion up to 18 weeks into pregnancy.

Biggar is one of 45 members appointed by Pope Francis to the academy last week.
