A homework assignment for St. John's University alumni

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jun 12, 2003

The homework problem: Susan Ebbs, Ed.D., is senior vice president for student life at St. John's University in Jamaica, New York, a large (over 18,000 students) Vincentian university. Dr. Ebbs has a habit of supporting pro-abortion causes and candidates. According to tray.com, in the past 2 years she's given $3,000 to Emily's List (which exists to elect pro-abortion women candidates), $500 to America Women Vote! 2002 (a joint project of Emily's List and various state Democratic parties), $250 to New York candidate Jill Long Thompson (pro-abortion), $250 to New Hampshire candidate Jeanne Shaheen (pro-abortion), $250 to New Jersey candidate Anne Sumers (pro-abortion), $250 to Tennessee candidate Gayle Ray (pro-abortion), $250 to Arizona candidate Elaine Richardson (pro-abortion), $250 to South Dakota candidate Stephanie Herseth (pro-abortion), and $250 to New Hampshire candidate Martha Fuller Clark (pro-abortion).

The homework question: Basing your answer upon the information in this problem, do you think Dr. Ebbs will support Ex Corde Ecclesiae and encourage students to be faithful, pro-life Catholics?

The homework assignment: If you think the answer is no, contact your alma mater, emphasizing the effect Dr. Ebbs' continued presence on campus will have upon your future donations.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

Dear reader: If you found the information on this page helpful in your pursuit of a better Catholic life, please support our work with a donation. Your donation will help us reach seven million Truth-seeking readers worldwide this year. Thank you!
