Janet Smith, who holds the Father Michael J. McGivney Chair of Life Ethics at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit, also believes empathy could be considered an intellectual virtue because it seeks to "understand what another person is going through and enter into their perspective of the world."

"The refusal to understand or recognize the truth of another person's experience is a refusal to recognize reality," Smith said.
In part, Smith thinks our difficulty with empathy stems from a kind of protective instinct.
"There's so much suffering in the world," she said. "Acknowledging the depth and reality of another's experience can, for some, be overwhelming.
"When we hear about another black child killed in Chicago," she said, "we want to think, 'Black mothers in Chicago must be used to their children being killed.
"We're all made in the image and likeness of God," Smith said.

"Natural Law and Sexual Ethics" by Janet E. Smith

Janet Smith, PhD, Father Michael J.McGivney Chair of Life Ethics at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit
Janet Smith, PhD, explains the basic principles of Catholic teaching on natural law and applies them to dangers of contraception for women. In brief, Dr. Smith explains thefirst principle of natural law "do good, and avoid evil" and theway in which acting rationally should be our guide for morality. Further,natural law operates on the premise that nature is good and that when we actrationally we act in accord with our own nature and reality. Next, shedescribes concrete moral facts connected with the use of contraceptives amongthe young, from 22%-68% of babies born out of wedlock to the consequentstruggle with poverty for the mothers of these children. She offers as herfirst principle of sexual morality: "don't have sexual intercourse,until you marry and are ready to be parents.
After all, I am Janet Smith, daughter of John and Anne Smith; I grew up at 5 Hill Street and went to Home Street School - I could go on but it is all very plain.
