Georgetown law class to include work with abortion-advocacy organization
Catholic World News - October 28, 2013
Law-school students at America’s oldest Catholic university will work with a pro-abortion advocacy group in Washington, according to a course description obtained by the Cardinal Newman Society.
Kelli Garcia, the senior counsel for the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC), reports that her students in a Georgetown University class will “develop projects that will assist in the organization’s advocacy efforts.”
“We have long warned about Georgetown scandals that undermine the Church's strong defense of innocent life,” said Patrick Reilly, the president of the Cardinal Newman Society. “But here students are being required to work for a pro-abortion lobby, making America's oldest Catholic university an active agent of the culture of death.”

Perhaps Washington will one day have a bishop who has the courage to strip Georgetown of any any pretense of Catholic identity. The examples it sets for young Catholics are a scandal!

Why does it always seem that there is always a huge amount of diffidence shown Jesuit schools? I mean, really, they seem to do, say and get away with so much, especially as a "Catholic" school - who do we blame, besides those who run the school, for not doing anything despite the repeated "in your face" actions of these schools of "protestant" education?
