Rep. Gwen Moore, Marquette’s Pet Pro-Abortion Extremist
According to Pro-Life Wisconsin:
FOCA would eliminate laws on informed consent, parental consent, abortion clinic regulations, conscience protection laws, government programs that fund and promote childbirth without funding abortion, laws prohibiting certain abortion procedures (e.g., partial birth abortion), laws requiring that abortions only be performed by licensed physicians, etc.But of course we expect the most liberal person in the U.S. Senate to be rabidly pro-abortion.
Who else supports the Freedom of Choice Act? Marquette’s own alumna and the Congresswoman who represents the district in which the university resides: Gwen Moore.
This is part of a consistent pattern of pro-abortion voting by Moore.
What is more striking is that Moore has been rather the pet of Marquette University, having won the Helen Way Klingler College of Arts and Sciences Distinguished Alumna Award, and getting a lavish reception at Marquette’s Les Aspin Center when she was sworn in as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives.
Marquette’s fondness for Moore is hard to interpret in a favorable light. The most obvious conclusion is that Marquette simply doesn’t care about Catholic Social Teaching about abortion. This may well be the case, given the liberal bias of the administration all the way up to and including Father Wild.
The other is that Marquette is pandering to Moore because she is in Congress and has a bit of political power. So are Marquette administrators utter hypocrites claiming to have any sort of loyalty to Catholic teaching, or are they whores pandering to political power?
