Robert Royal will be in Rome to cover the Vatican Workshop on Biological Extinction, which is jointly sponsored by the Pontifical Academies of Sciences and Social Sciences, and which features such participants as population-control guru Paul Ehrlich – and others who champion various methods of population control, such as abortion, contraception, and euthanasia.

As First Things commented about Bob’s reporting on the 2014 Synod on the Family, his reporting is “required reading for anyone trying to understand the dynamics of that Synod amidst the reportorial and analytic fog...” The Workshop will convene on February 27 and run through March 1st.
