Pro-Life Catholic Group Delivers 300,000 Petitions to Notre Dame on Obama Invite

A pro-life Catholic educational watchdog group today is delivering to University of Notre Dame officials more than 300,000 petitions opposing its invitation to President Barack Obama. The pro-abortion president will deliver the college’s commencement address and receive an honorary degree. After news of the invitation reached the public, the response from the pro-life community was immediate and strongly negative. Although hundreds of thousands of people contacted Notre Dame directly, another 300,000 signed the petition sponsored by the Cardinal Newman Society at NotreDameScandal.com.
