Southern Cal Is An Abortion School. 'Notre Dame' Should Have Dropped Them Long Ago.

"Notre Dame's" football opponents have routinelly included institutions performing abortions, training abortionists or otherwise claiming a direct connection with abortion.

Southern Cal is no exception, and they even claim to offer "High volume abortion training."

The Catholic Church, with which "Notre Dame" still claims to be associated, regards prenatal killing to be such a serious matter that abortion brings automatic excommunication, like other forms of homicide.

"Notre Dame" should have dropped Southern Cal long ago. Every time they schedule them, it enhances Southern Cal's revenues and prestige.

Even worse, association with Southern Cal under such circumtances lends Southern Cal a false air of legitimization, contributing to the "business as usual" obliviousness that has made abortion more feasible across society.

The University of Southern California openly admits that they train abortionists. At a minimum, for starters, their webpage for their "Complex Family Planning Fellowship Program" declares:

"The Fellowship in Complex Family Planning is a two-year fellowship focused on subspecialist training in research, teaching and clinical practice in abortion and contraception. ..."

As can be seen, the details of the program are somewhat voluminous, including "clinical" training, contributions to would-be research, and training in the "political landscape."

The program professes to include training at the Los Angeles General Medical Center and also speaks of "High-volume abortion training" at so-called Planned Parenthood locations.

A "Reproductive Options Clinic"is said to provide "comprehensive counseling for pregnancy disposition, with provision of surgical or medical termination as indicated."

Like a luxury mansion that turns out to be infested by vermine, toxic molds and rodentia, "Notre Dame's" football schedule sounds PR-glitzy yet usually turns out to be tainted by multiple abortion-connected opponents. That comes despite the fact that the Catholic Church regards abortion with such seriousness that procurement of abortion brings automatic excommunication.

The lassitude and lack of a proper moral compass with the football scheduling, or conference affiliations, overlaps years of moral shortcomings for senior "Notre Dame" officials thumbing their nose at the Catholic Faith and basic decency. They even have honored, or hired, pro-abortion politicians, as well as tolerating one or more "Notre Dame" faculty promoting acceptance of abortion publicly.

The leading human rights violation of the day, abortion is likely the most widespread violence against human life on the planet.

With over 63 million surgical abortions in the United States since 1973, the number of Americans murdered in the womb even approaches the numbers needed to win the Presidency.

Then there is the racial factor. Abortion is far more wide-spread than slavery ever was in the South before the Civil War, and abortion is impacting Blacks at a rate several times higher than Whites per capita.

"Notre Dame" Football especially should be more racially sensitive about the abortion issue, given the large numbers of Blacks on football rosters, much higher than the Black portion of the population, and even higher still than the much lower percentage of Blacks in the "Notre Dame" student body.

Then there is the abortion connection for Notre Dame Football itself. A "Notre Dame" Heisman winner from the 1950's made a disclosure in his memoirs that was taken as an admission that, after getting a young woman pregant out of wedlock, he was complicit in her obtaining what would have been an illegal abortion.

In addition to any legal problems, that player likely would have been expelled from "Notre Dame" before winning the Heisman, and, given the disreputable nature of the matter, probably would have had difficulty winning such accolades anywhere else.

Yet instead of disavowing the player, suggesting he give back his Heisman, and giving up whatever Heisman Trophy, or replica, "Notre Dame" itself possesses, "Notre Dame" invited the problem individual to speak at a pep rally (at which a bizarre spectacle unfolded in which his pants fell down at the podium, prompting excuse-making about losing weight).

It is long overdue for "Notre Dame" to boot Southern Cal, Stanford and other abortion-connected schools off the schedule, and to leave conferences like the ACC and so-called Big Ten that include abortion schools.

While it is not entirely clear which senior "Notre Dame" staff are most responsible for their shortcomings in the matter, or the extent to which their misconduct is intentional, or more from moral lazinesss, those "officials" have long overdue to be shown to the curb, or kicked out of their religious order. That especially is the case for big-money school officials with a past track record of hiring or honoring pro-abortion politicians.

Word is now coming out that at least two highest-level "Notre Dame" officials are indeed leaving after this year. Yet the problem of scheduling abortion schools, and failing to acknowledge the harmful repercussions, remain.

["Notre Dame" is placed in quotes out of respect for the Blessed Virgin Mary and Jesus, her Divine Son. The words "Notre Dame," of course, are French for "Our Lady," referring to the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God. It would be disrespectful to imply that she would be associated with various scandals emerging in the current era at the post-secondary institution near the Indiana-Michigan border whose nonprofit corporation persists in calling the institution "Notre Dame du Lac," including those scandals demonstrating lack of fidelity to Christ, such as the honoring, hiring or retention of pro-abortion politicians and faculty.]
