U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer is more than vaguely "pro-choice."  He penned the majority opinion in the Stenberg v Carhart decision in 2000, striking down state laws banning partial-birth abortion.  In fact, the abortion procedure he supported is so barbaric that the United States Congress called for its outright prohibition in 2003:

"A moral, medical, and ethical consensus exists that the practice of performing a partial-birth abortion.... (usually the puncturing of the back of the child’s skull and removing the baby’s brains) is a gruesome and inhumane procedure that is never medically necessary and should be prohibited.”


As a registered nurse, Brenda Pratt Shafer witnessed partial-birth abortions while working for an abortionist in Ohio. This is how she described one of these abortions in a letter to Congressman Tony Hall:

"The baby's body was moving. His little fingers were clasping together. He was kicking his feet. All the while his little head was still stuck inside. Dr. Haskell took a pair of
scissors and inserted them into the back of the baby's head. Then he opened the scissors up. Then he stuck the high-powered suction tube into the hole and sucked the baby's brains out. "

However, DePaul University's College of Law in Chicago —the largest Catholic university in America— has invited Justice Breyer to deliver a special address at its 20th Annual Clifford Symposium on April 24 and 25.  According to DePaul's online announcement, the event will explore "what it means to be a judge and to seek justice in America’s courts."

Well, what about the Fifth Commandment?  What about DePaul's Catholic identity?  And what about the grave injustice of procured abortion?

What about the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops' clear statement that "Catholic institutions should not honor those who act in defiance of our fundamental moral principles. They should not be given awards, honors or platforms which would suggest support for their actions."

Predictably, NARAL Pro-Choice America Foundation gives Justice Breyer flying colors for his "history of support for reproductive freedom."  The group highlights multiple cases in which Justice Breyer ruled in favor of pro-abortion policies.  NARAL also published a list of pro-abortion quotes by Justice Breyer on its web site.

How can a judge with such a pro-abortion record be invited to give not only a lecture, but a prominent address, at a Catholic university, which ought to be a cornerstone in the defense of innocent life?

Take action:  Everyone who supports the God-given right to life should sign this respectful and peaceful protest to DePaul University.

"Your signed petition to stop this scandal will be presented to officials of DePaul University," said TFP Student Action director John Ritchie.  "Our goal is to collect 20,000 petitions by January 22, before the 41st anniversary of Roe v Wade."

"Let's work to make procured abortion unthinkable," he said, "starting with Catholic campuses. No compromise is possible with the sin of abortion.  Let's replace the culture of death, with a culture of purity."

I'm deeply concerned.  Why is DePaul University undermining its Catholic identity by inviting pro-abortion Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer to speak on campus?  Justice Breyer even ruled in favor of partial-birth abortion, a barbaric procedure.  It's time to ask DePaul University to rescind this invitation and defend the right to life.

Forgive me. I plagiarized a good part of this article so that I could quickly write a protest on DePaul's website. I plan to email this info to all on my email list and to ask them to submit their comments on one of the suggested sites.

He was invited.... he accepted... he is intending to address a public he knows doesn't agree with his choices. If we fight to revoke this invitation, what are we showing him? What can we expect the result to be?

There is no reasonable justification for choosing someone blessed by the miracle of LIFE who is unable to comprehend the injustice he inflicts on a helpless human.
Mr. President do your duty and follow the example of the young thoughtful student leaders of your university and rescind that invitation. Be the MENTOR you are supposed to be set an example worthy of your calling.

This has really upset me. I'm a registered nurse and have refused to assist in abortion procedures. What I read about this man is unbelievable. I couldn't do it to an animal. It's inhuman and no university, certainly not one that calls itself Catholic should entertain him. God gives life and only He has the right to take away life. Students be warned and don't choose this university, it has no morality.

Where is the so-called Catholic leadership at these universities ? If these are in fact Catholic universities, why don't our bishops or even our pope take action and remove these so-called leaders??? We must do something !!!

Although I am opposed to and sickened by partial birth abortion I am also saddened by our lack of faith. Faith in intelligent Catholic students who will reject those sinners that promote this killing procedure. The Justice's visit to DePaul will give good Christian Catholics and opportunity to show their faith by refusing to attend the speech. This physical demonstration of rejection will speak louder than words.
Holy Father I pray that you show your disdain for the killing of the innocent through your children's refusal to attend Justice Breyer's speech at DePaul University. In Jesus name we pray. Hail Mary full of grace the Lord is with thee, blessed is thou amongst women and blessed is the fruit thy womb Jesus. Holy Mary mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death, Amen.

If the University authorities have forgotten these two scriptural verses ( and many more), I'll like to remind them.
Eph 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.
Ro 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
MAY NO ONE BE A PARTAKER OF EVIL!!!

Sir, if you indeed a human being, and a Catholic, please reconsider your choice of speakers for this address. You sir, are alive and "well", these inocent children killed by an "animal"/doctor, are not. Your faithless wonder and demonic attiude are demoralizing to both the living and the dead. I urge you to reconsider your invitation and to recall the words of our LORD, Do onto the children as you would do to me." Really, would you allow the abortion of Jesus??
