Last month the Cardinal Newman Society announced the scandal of Georgetown University's plan to honor Cecile Richards this coming April. At the time details weren't known. Now (thanks to the Cardinal Newman Society) we know that the travesty will occur on April 20th (exactly two weeks from today) at 2:00 pm at the Lohrfink Auditorium. This lecture is closed to all but GU students and security will be tight.
We all know that Richards, as president of the largest chain of baby-killing mills, directs the murders of thousands (if not millions) of helpless children. The ruthlessness of Planned Parenthood is becoming more and more evident, as typified in the ransacking of the home of David Daleiden in California. This travesty against justice was orchestrated by California Attorney General Kamala Harris, who seems to be in Planned Parenthood's back pocket.
Cecile Richards has no business being honored on a Catholic campus, even if the leaders of the school have long scorned their own Catholic heritage.
On Monday we heard from Bishop Gracida that it's way past time that we laity protested loudly. We should do so on April 20th. Who, especially those in the MD/DC/VA area, will be there to stand up to this insult of Our Lord being committed on Catholic grounds? Again, I'll post as soon as details of a protest are clarified.
