The University of Notre Dame, which sued the federal government over the HHS mandate, has just named a new member to its Board of Trustees who has publicly supported the same mandate and criticized the U.S. bishops opposition to it.
The Cardinal Newman Society has discovered that Katie Washington, Notre Dames valedictorian in 2010 and an M.D./Ph.D. candidate at the Johns Hopkins University Schools of Medicine and Public Health, contributed to an op-ed in 2012 along with fellow Johns Hopkins students which appeared in the Baltimore Sun, saying they, strongly disagree with any employer religious or otherwise that would refuse to provide full insurance coverage, including contraception, for its employees.
The op-ed was primarily written by fellow Johns Hopkins student Max Romano, who this school year served with Washington on the governing board of SOURCE, described as the community service and service-learning center for medical and public health students. Among SOURCEs community partners are Planned Parenthood of Maryland, which performs abortions and distributes contraceptives, and the pro-contraception Center for Adolescent Health.

Wow... ND has turned into quite the little bastion of leftism in recent years...
Notre Shame strikes again! Next, they will want to put Obozo on the Board of Trustees at his earliest convenience.
Trust me. I got this from the source.
ND has been on this path ever since "Ted the Head" was in charge. My one personal one-on-one conversation with him back in 1968 was the most disillusioning experience of my then young life.
(My Lutheran wife still doesn't fully understand why I took my sheepskin off the wall.)
The left is a cancer that has metastasized. The Body America is riddled with it. The only treatment is hospice care until she dies.
I’m trying really hard to come up with a good reason to disagree with you.
Unfortunately, the “unbridled optimism” part of my brain isn’t working too well this morning.
Football and leftism. That’s basically all Notre Dame is. Because it damn sure isn’t Catholic in any meaningful sense.
I'd love to know a little more about this meeting with Hesburgh. He was quite in demand in 1968.
As one ND alum told me, “It’s not a Catholic university any more, just a university where a lot of Catholics go.”
Clearly, you have Hesburgh’s number. Are you familiarwith his “Land o’ Lakes Conference” prying most Catholic colleges (all but 6) off of their Catholic roots and commitments in 1968? Fr. Robert Henle, SJ, a substantial Latin language scholar and at one time president of Georgetown was his second in command of the conference. God bless you and yours!
I remember presenting myself proudly as a voice of traditionalism in the face of the campus radicals only to find that the man to whom I was speaking was himself, the Radical-in-Chief, cleverly disguised by his Trojan Priesthood.
Blessings on you and those you love as well, in Jesus’ Holy Name.
