Pro-Life Leader to Notre Dame: Cancel The Prez

Obama is "the most pro-abortion president in U.S. history"



    How Telehealth Technology is Revolutionizing Healthcare
    President Barack Obama has changed course on many Bush policies, something that doesn't sit well with the pro-life movement.

    Notre Dame invited President Barack Obama to do their commencement speech on May 17 -- and if they don't take it back, one pro-life leader says he's going to raise the masses in protest.

    Since his first week in office, Obama has made a string of executive orders, appointments and policy decisions that contradict Catholic teaching of the sanctity of life, said Joe Scheidler, national director of the Pro-Life Action League, in a press release on Christian Newswire.

    He's "the most pro-abortion president in U.S. history," according to Scheidler, who notes Obama's decision to dedicate federal funds to harvest embryonic stem cells for research, overturning conscience protections for healthcare workers, and appointing Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius to head the Department of Health and Human Services among Obama's sins.

    If the Catholic university keeps Obama on the roster, Scheidler promises "a massive pro-life protest on graduation day."

    The other two institutions of higher learning on the President's commencement address tour this year -- Arizona State University (May 13) and the U.S. Naval Academy (May 22) -- aren't on Scheidler's protest list.
