'I don't know that this will be a dramatic change,' president says
SOUTH BEND -- The University of Notre Dame on Thursday issued an institutional statement affirming "its commitment to the defense of human life in all its stages."
The university also has adopted new principles for the institution's charitable activity.
"I don't know that this will be a dramatic change," the Rev. John I. Jenkins, Notre Dame's president, said in a telephone interview. "We wanted principles that we could apply consistently."
The development and adoption of the statement and principles were among recommendations made to Jenkins by the campus Task Force on Supporting the Choice for Life.
Jenkins and the university faced widespread criticism last spring for inviting President Barack Obama, who favors abortion rights, to campus to give the commencement address and receive an honorary degree. Jenkins created the task force in September.The new statement on the defense of life reads: "Consistent with the teaching of the Catholic Church on such issues as abortion, research involving human embryos, euthanasia, the death penalty, and other related life issues, the University of Notre Dame recognizes and upholds the sanctity of human life from conception to natural death."

Hey, how about when you invite someone to YOUR campus, you do not allow any hiding of icons? How about allowing the showing on the Holy Name of Christ, a cross and not allowing anyone to cover them up as if you were ashamed.
Hey, how about BEING a witness, instead of asking others to be?
Thanks for the ping!
Have the charges against the protesters been dropped?
