New Notre Dame Trustee Donated Thousands to Pro-Abortion Groups

Is it impossible for Notre Dame to find a trustee who doesn't support pro-abortion groups. No matter how weak their argument for inviting President Obama to be the commencement speaker was was this seems even worse. 
Two weeks ago, the Cardinal Newman Society discovered that Roxanne M. Martino, a newly-appointed member of the trustees board, contributed $16,150 to the pro-abortion group EMILY’s List between 2005 and 2008. The watchdog group also uncovered information showing Martino gave donations to the Chicago Foundation for Women, which supports various pro-abortion groups including Planned Parenthood. http://blog.cardinalnewmansociety.org/2011/05/11/new-notre-dame-trustee-gave-thousands-to-pro-abortion-group/

Martino has given a total of somewhere between $3,250 and $5,996 to the pro-abortion Chicago Foundation for Women between 2004 and 2011, CNS notes.

The Sycamore Trust, the alumni group concerned for Notre Dame’s Catholic identity, followed up on the CNS report and contacted Notre Dame officials, who did not dispute the information in the CNS report. In fact, the donations to pro-abortion groups from Martino is higher than previously established.
Maybe those in charge at Notre Dame should hear the homily from Cardinal Bertone to Caritas, then again if they are going to ignore the Pope why would they pay attention to him.  Read more of the story here.
