Fighting the Irish

The University of Notre Dame

Thanks to the new Indiana law, the University of Notre Dame and other Catholic colleges in the state have greater protection for their religious beliefs.  One would think our premier university would rejoice….

Why pro-life leaders think Catholic schools are "vehicles" of the pro-life movement. See here as well.
