Archbishop refuses to attend ceremony honoring pro-abortion politicians

.- Archbishop Alfred Hughes of New Orleans has refused to attend Loyola University’s commencement ceremony because the institution has chosen to confer honors to two pro-abortion politicians, Sen. Mary Landrieu and her brother, Lt. Gov. Mitch Landrieu.

National director of Priests for Life Fr. Frank Pavone commended the archbishop for his courageous decision.

"Archbishop Hughes has bravely stood up to the defiance of Loyola University," said Fr. Pavone.

"Some will counter that we cannot exercise this vigilance on abortion without starting to do so on a host of other moral issues. The fact is that support for abortion violates the foundation of every moral position, not just that regarding the unborn. If you deny a child a right to live, you've already denied his right to work, health care, education, and living in peace," added Fr. Pavone.
