April 2, 2009 Notre Dame pro-life students want our help for 1st protest planned
Eric Scheidler of Pro-Life Action League sent out this alert yesterday, the first public action being taken by the pro-life Notre Dame student group NDResponse.com, and their first public request for the pro-life community's help. Please attend if you're anywhere close. This debut of pro-life objection to the ND administration's plan to honor Barack Obama at its May 17 commencement must be strong.
Ever since word broke that Barack Obama is to give the commencement address at the University of Notre Dame, pro-lifers across the country have been eager to speak out against this scandal.
Notre Dame President Fr. John Jenkins has been flooded with phone calls, e-mails, letters and faxes urging him to rescind the Obama invitation.
NOW comes our first opportunity to publicly demonstrate ON CAMPUS against Barack Obama's appearance there.
Notre Dame Response is hosting a pro-life rally this Sunday, April5 - Palm Sunday - at 2 p.m. at the Dome, after the Noon Mass at the Basilica....
EVENT: Pro-Life Rally at Notre DameWHEN: Sunday, April 5 at 2 p.m.WHERE: Outside the Main BuildingMAP: http://tinyurl.com/NotreDameDome
Pro-life lawyer Harold Cassidy will be the keynote speaker for the rally, which will also include speeches by members of Notre Dame Response, and a Rosary. More details here.
If you live within a few hours drive of South Bend, IN, I encourage you to make the trip for this first public demonstration against the Barack Obama commencement scandal.
Meanwhile, keep your calendar clear for the weekend of May 15-17.Many plans are in the works for what may well be the biggest pro-life protest in a generation.
Yours for Life,
