I received a Ph.D. in philosophy from Michigan State University. I wrote my dissertation--Persons, Rights, and the Problem of Abortion--under the direction of Rhoda Kotzin. From 1976 until 2015, I taught at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. At last, though, I have become an independent scholar! My wife Elizabeth and I have six children. We have made our home in Inglewood. Here are my commitments:
- Pro-Life for the Whole Life
- Social Justice
- Freedom of Conscience
- Local Government
