America, particularly Catholic America, is outraged that the University of Notre Dame has invited Barack Obama to speak at its commencement May 17.

Thus, the most notoriously pro-abortion President in history will be honored by the Catholic institution of Notre Dame.

Here is the response of Notre Dame President Fr. John Jenkins C.S.C.: “The invitation of President Obama to be our commencement speaker should in no way be taken as condoning or endorsing his positions on specific issues regarding the protection of life, such as abortion and embryonic stem cell research.”

Wisconsin Right to Life Executive Barbara Lyons said, “Given that millions of unborn children face death under Obama Administration policies, I am sending an email to Fr. Jenkins asking if Notre Dame would welcome an avowed racist who favors slavery to give the commencement address.”

“If Jenkins had invited such a speaker, would his response be “Our invitation to Speaker X should in no way be taken as condoning slavery or racism, even though the speaker ardently supports them,” continued Lyons.

Wisconsin Right to Life is urging people to contact Fr. Jenkins by phone at 574-631-5000 or via email at president@nd.edu and call upon him to recind the invitation.
