When I grow up …

An amusing article about a Boston College sophomore who wants to be a US Senator some day, who is conservative and pro-life despite her Catholic parents’ more liberal views and who thinks BC should be more Catholic.

I’m definitely pro-life. It’s hard to say what I would do in a situation like that, but I’d like to think that I’d make the decision that I stand up for. I just think that hindering the potential life of a human being is completely wrong. Being pro-life was so unpopular in high school, and it is in college, too. You’d think it’d be popular in a place like Boston College (a Catholic school), but it really isn’t. People would be like, “You’re such a fascist!”

You can definitely see a bit of the callowness of youth and some hubris, but nothing that life experience and growing maturity can’t cure.

I don’t know why it grabbed me, but I found it amusing.
