Reminder: Catholicism doesn't support abortion, same-sex 'marriage'

Cecile Richards (Planned Parenthood)Campaigns continue to urge two Catholic institutions of higher learning to disinvite controversial speakers.

The Lecture Fund, a student organization at the Jesuit Georgetown University in Washington, DC, has invited Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards to speak in a forum where only her pro-abortion message will be heard.

"We've pointed out over and over again that she herself is responsible for over 2.8 million abortions that have taken place at Planned Parenthood facilities across the United States since she has been president," comments Adam Cassandra of The Cardinal Newman Society, an organization that promotes and defends faithful Catholic education.

Planned Parenthood also promotes contraception and promiscuity through its website and sex education program – all things that are contrary to Catholic theology. So Cassandra directs people to GeorgetownScandal.com, where they can sign a petition to oppose Richards' engagement at the university. 

Meanwhile, Notre Dame is presenting its highly prestigious Laetare Medal to Vice President Joe Biden.

"Joe Biden has spent his entire political career advocating against the Catholic Church's moral teachings on abortion, human dignity," Cassandra laments. "He's come out as vice president as a champion for legalized same-sex marriage."

Bishop Kevin Rhoades has made sure that Notre Dame President John Jenkins understands that.

Former House Speaker John Boehner will also receive the award.
