URGENT petition to Notre Dame: Please drop the charges

The 88 outspoken pro-lifers peacefully walked onto Notre Dame’s campus in May to be the voice of the unborn – when pro-abortion president Obama was honored there – and were arrested for trespassing. Among those arrested were Fr. Norman Weslin, several Catholic nuns, Norma McCorvey, the “Jane Roe” of Roe v. Wade, and Ambassador Alan Keyes.
“While witnesses say pro-Obama protesters were allowed to roam free, the arrested individuals were singled out for displaying any pro-life message — including slogans on the sanctity of life, photographs of aborted children, a large wooden cross, and images of Mary.”
The double standard is rather shocking, isn’t it?
The University of Notre Dame, as the original complainant, has the choice to drop the charges pending against the 88 pro-lifers.
Therefore, your signature is very important right now because, according to reports, the president of Notre Dame “has repeatedly refused to seek such leniency or even answer the pro-lifers’ requests for dialogue.” (Lifesitenews.com: 09-04-09)
Join this urgent petition. Pass it along. Post it on Facebook, on blogs, and get the word out.
Kindly ask Fr. Jenkins to drop the charges
Respectfully contact Fr. John Jenkins, president of Notre Dame:
