Embryo-research proponent leaves Notre Dame board
CWN - August 26, 2011
For the second time in recent weeks, the University of Notre Dame has announced the departure of a board member whose public views clashed with the teachings of the Catholic Church.
Marye Anne Fox, who was a prominent advocate of embryonic stem-cell research in California, has left her position on the school’s board of directors. University officials did not comment on her departure.
In June another board member, Roxanne Martino, resigned after she came under criticism because of her support for Emily’s List, an organization “dedicated to electing pro-choice Democratic women to office.”
