I am befuddled. Why would those who built a Catholic University and ostensibly a Catholic town to surround it, actively recruit and assist a business that performs work antithetical to Catholic teaching to the area?
That seems to be exactly what is happening. Tom Monaghan and his development partners are actively recruiting Jackson Laboratory to the surrounding area and the University leadership is assisting.
I understand that luring a large bio-tech company into the area could be a boon to the town and to the university, but at what price? Through facts dug up at AveWatch.com, I must say there is enough evidence of Jackson Laboratory’s involvement in contraceptive research and embryonic stem cell research to raise serious concerns.
Jackson Labs own website boasts of its research into “better contraceptive methods.”
These are very serious issues….
