David W. Louisell was a professor of law at the Boalt School of Law at the University of California at Berkley.  Professor Louisell wrote on topics of evidence law and civil procedure, but a serious interest of Louisell’s revolved around the legal and ethical aspects of the right to life.[1]  With John T. Noonan, Louisell penned The Morality of Abortion: Legal and Historical Perspectives, detailing case law that unjustly tramples the right of an unborn child to live.[2]  Having devoted much of his scholarly career to the right to life,[3] Pope Paul VI entered him into the Knighthood of St. Gregory.[4]
