NOTRE DAME, Indiana, May 19, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The newest member of the University of Notre Dames board of trustees has dedicated thousands of dollars to supporting pro-abortion groups, including the pro-choice political action committee EMILYs List.
The Cardinal Newman Society (CNS) broke the story May 11 that Roxanne M. Martino, president and CEO of Aurora Investment Management and Notre Dame alumna, had donated a total of $16,150 to EMILYs List, an organization dedicated to electing pro-choice Democratic women to office. Notre Dame announced Martinos election last month to the universitys Board of Trustees.
EMILYs List has helped the careers of such pro-abortion politicians as Sen. Dianne Feinstein, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Or it is a return to the bad ways of the past.
A Jenkinsist Catholic no doubt who will be quoted regularly in the New York Times.
Link to the Cardinal Newman Society story:
What is very disturbing about this is when this woman donated money -- from 2005 to 2008 -- not decades ago...
The board is already strongly biased that way. They supported Fr. Jenkins all the way when he invited Obama to give the graduation speech, and when he persecuted the faithful Catholics who protested it—with hymns and prayers.
It’s typical scratch-my-back kind of stuff. I presume it goes back to Jenkin’s predecessor Hester, and the Land O’ Lakes days.
“They should fire Father John Jenkins and get a Catholic to run Notre Dame...”
I’m not sure to what extent REAL Catholics have control over Notre Dame anymore.
The Bishop, Archbishop enable all this.
Notre Dame is a JOKE as a Catholic college.
The irony—a female trustee at Our Lady’s school. There must be some equivalent sanction on this.
Notre Dame’s affiliation with the Roman Catholic Church is strictly symbolic.
It’s all about the money. It’s always about the money.
