"Catholic University Allow[s] Someone who Strongly Believes in Partial-Birth Abortion"

Pro-Life, Catholic Advocates Complain About Michelle Obama Speech at Villanova
Philadelphia, PA (LifeNews.com) --

Another Catholic college is getting tagged by pro-life advocates for hosting a pro-abortion speaker -- this time Villanova University for a Thursday appearance by Michelle Obama. The wife of pro-abortion presidential candidate Barack Obama spoke before 2,500 people at a political rally for him at Villanova’s Jake Nevin Fieldhouse. Senator Obama's pro-abortion views are well-established and he favors keeping abortions legal another 35 years and paid for with taxpayer dollars.

Michelle Obama, also an abortion advocate, endorsed partial-birth abortion in a 2004 fundraising letter for her husband. Kristan Hawkins, the director of Students for Life of America, alerted LifeNews.com to the appearance and said it violates the pro-life and Catholic views of Villanova students. “It is disheartening to see a Catholic university allow someone who strongly believes in partial-birth abortion, a procedure which our Supreme Court even ruled to be barbaric and cruel, come to their campus to speak," Hawkins said. The pro-life student leader told LifeNews.com she spoke with Villanova's president who informed her that student groups, which invited Obama, are independent and Villanova officials can't control their activities.

ACTION: Father Donohue, the president of Villanova University, can be reached at president@villanova.edu. Please let him know you oppose Obama's visit. Full story at LifeNews.com.
