Anti-Abortion Rights Protesters Target U.S. President Barack Obama at Notre Dame (and get arrested)

May 17, 2009

Nineteen pro life demonstrators were arrested [MSNBC] during Notre Dame’s graduation ceremony Saturday. The protesters object to President Obama’s appearance at Notre Dame today when he will deliver the commencement address.

They’d much prefer for the President of the United States to stay away from Roman Catholic universities due to his pro choice and pro embryonic stem cell research positions. Some of the protesters aren’t too happy with his pro birth control position either. Expect more protests and arrests today.

Some students who planned to attend the commencement said they would show their displeasure at the Obama invitation by putting a yellow cross with yellow baby’s feet atop their mortarboards.

And see and the MSNBC article on the incident: MSNBC
