From a reader:
Georgetown Law will be giving [Vice-President] Biden the Legal Momentum Hero Award on Wednesday. Would a non-disruptive protest be acceptable? For example, standing at the back of the room with my back turned.
Hmmm… I didn’t know about this.
Some questions spring to mind.
Is Georgetown Law still connected with Georgetown University? Do they claim a Catholic or Jesuit identity? Do they refer to the same when fund-raising? Who is really giving this award? What is the connection with Georgetown?
Vice-President Biden, Catholic, is on record as a clear supporter of abortion.
If Georgetown Law is still in some way Catholic, then they are about to at least participate in honoring a pro-abortion public figure.
So… what is this award?
The award is to be given during the Symposium Celebrating the 15th Anniversary of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).
This symposium is sponsored by the Georgetown Journal of Gender and the Law and Legal Momentum.
I assume that, because of the name of the award, it is really being given by Legal Momentum, rather then directly by Georgetown. But the event is co-sponsored by an entity of the University.
It is ironic that this is about the Violence Against Women Act, but somehow the people involved don’t see that the act of abortion and the industry of abortion is really all about violence against women at the deepest level. Not to mention that at least half of the children to whom this violence is done are female… more more in some cultures.
