Speaking from Experience

Letter to the Editor | Tuesday, March 24, 2009

I’ll keep this short and sweet: I’m saddened by the University’s commencement invitation to President Obama. I say this as a 1992 graduate of Our Lady’s University and as a woman who found herself young, alone and pregnant – and chose life. What policies and positions of Obama can matter if he can’t protect the very least among us – the unborn. How do I tell my daughter, the wonder of my life, why the school she aspires too attend can’t stand against society and stand for Christ, for our faith, and for Our Lady?
