Norma McCorvey, the woman who was the “Jane Roe” in the U.S. legal decision “Roe v. Wade,” has said Notre Dame’s choice of President Barack Obama to be the commencement speaker gives its graduates a poor example. She also expressed surprise more parents have not pulled out of commencement.
Speaking to Damien Thompson, the Britain-based editor of the Catholic Herald and writer for the Daily Telegraph, McCorvey said “Obama is not the ideal person to speak to a young bunch of kids that are going out into the world for the first time.”
“These people will have to remember that it was him who spoke at their graduation for the rest of their natural lives. We have many in the pro-life movement that are better qualified to do this,” she continued.
“I am really surprised more parents haven’t pulled their kids out. I have heard that many of them will not show up this reason.” Article
