Washington, DC – American Life League president Judie Brown issued the following statement on the news that contributions to the University of Notre Dame fell by over $120 million during the fiscal year in which [Alleged] President Barack Obama, a zealous abortion advocate, delivered a speech and was honored at commencement ceremonies.
As one of the first responders to the scandal, American Life League and its supporters insisted that the university had forfeited its right to be called Catholic and thus petitioned for the school’s removal from The Official Catholic Directory.
“It is heartening to hear that Notre Dame’s donors responded so overwhelmingly to American Life League’s call and that of so many other organizations and individuals that were genuinely scandalized and saddened by the mockery made of an institution also known as ‘Our Lady’s University.’
“The fact that Notre Dame bestowed an honorary law degree on a man who is outspokenly committed to denying the poorest and weakest human beings their God-given human rights, pains me to this day.
“We want to thank, once again, the American Life League supporters who signed our petition to Bishop John D’Arcy and all those who supported our on-the-ground work in Fort Wayne and South Bend, Indiana.
“Clearly, our combined voices were heard by Notre Dame’s donors and, you can be very sure, will be felt by the university for a long time to come.
“The saga of Notre Dame, though tragic, is also an uplifting reminder that Christendom is still alive, courageous and responsive in the face of insults to Our Lord and His Blessed Mother.”
American Life League was cofounded in 1979 by Judie Brown. It is the largest grassroots Catholic pro-life organization in the United States and is committed to the protection of all innocent human beings from the moment of creation to natural death.

That’s real money.
ND is going to need every penny they can get after the Sullivan family sues the crap out of them.
HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAAHH!!! WISH IT WENT DOWN EVEN MORE!!! Evil priest.
awesome! Way to speak with the pocket books folks!!!!!!!!! That is some result. God bless ‘em all that said, “no way are we going to support this!”
Who’s the Sullivan family and why would they sue??
Please explain the Sullivan Family comment?
Thanks in advance!
I know my contributions don’t amount to much, but I have refused to give money to the college I attended since they had that idiot Jeffrey Immelt from GE as their commencement speaker a few years ago. I even told them the first time I refused to give exactly why, but that didn’t seem to either register with anyone nor keep them from calling again and again.
This is called “hitting ‘em where it really hurts.”
I love it.
They have no spine.
The Notre Dame hierarchy owes ever Christian in the country an apology after the way it supinely bowed to the Obamessiah. If I am not mistaken, they removed the cross from the podium in compliance with his demand and then allowed him to use the forum to promote abortion.
I hope they go broke.
I grew up rooting for Notre Dame and excellent players like Tony Rice, Rocket Ismail, Tim Brown, Jerome Bettis, James Brooks, etc.
Since the BS they hoisted upon Catholics during the “Age of Obumble”, I take great pleasure in their futility and root like hell for it to continue. FUND!!!

Baby killing and muslim loving school. Screw ND.
