.- Yesterday, pro-life scholar Steven Mosher was presented with the “Blessed Frederic Ozanam” award by the Society of Catholic Social Scientists for his work as a pro-life author, speaker and researcher.

The Population Research Institute is a non-profit research group that seeks to protect life by working “to expose the myth of overpopulation, to expose human rights abuses committed in population control programs, and to make the case that people are the world’s greatest resource.”

As he received the award at a ceremony yesterday, Mosher spoke out against abortion, which he called the “greatest social injustice of our time.”  He called to mind the award’s namesake, Blessed Frederic Ozanam, who founded the Society of St. Vincent de Paul in order to better serve the poor and underprivileged. 

Mosher explained that his work at the Population Research Institute is an attempt to continue this work by defending the most vulnerable in society today, the unborn.  “No one is more impoverished than the child in the womb,” said Mosher.  “The poor may possess little, but the unborn child possesses nothing.”

The Society of Catholic Social Scientists issues the Blessed Frederic Ozanam award to people who demonstrate “Catholic social action.” Previous recipients of the award include Dr. Ronald Rychlak, defender of Pope Pius XII; Karl Keating, founder and president of Catholic Answers; and Theresa Burke, known for her work with post-abortive women.
