guess who's here?

Nice to see the president of a large Catholic university taking an active interest in pro-life work. John Garvey, the brand-new president of Catholic University, was sitting in the front row last night when CUA Students for Life hosted a talk by that industrial-strength young pro-life activist, Lila Rose. 

Kudos to Garvey. The message of Lila Rose is not for the faint of heart, and we don't know whether Garvey would endorse everything she said. But at a minimum, right at the start  of his tenure at CUA, he's sending the message that he's paying attention. 

(Full disclosure: If you follow the link and browse through the photos, you might suspect that I'm not entirely free of bias in reporting on this event. I plead guilty. That lovely young lady that you'll see introducing Lila Rose, is my daughter Deirdre, the president of CUA Students for Life.) 

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Thank you for the link through to the CUA photos. That is a huge number - 3,700 abortions a day! Some years ago in Sydney, Australia, known as the abortion capital of the South Pacific we did something similar on a popular Sydney beach. We decided to erect 800 crosses to mark the number of abortions performed in Sydney every week - 40,000 per year. When we had finished, we were all taken by the sadness of what was illustrated on the beach - and heartened by the number of people who asked "why".
