Pro-Life, Catholic Advocates Complain About Michelle Obama Speech at Villanova

Another Catholic college is getting tagged by pro-life advocates for hosting a pro-abortion speaker -- this time Villanova University for a Thursday appearance by Michelle Obama.

Michelle Obama, also an abortion advocate, endorsed partial-birth abortion in a 2004 fundraising letter for her husband.

On Sept. 11, 2005, Haleigh was taken to hospital in "an unresponsive state", according to court documents. "Haleigh had both old and new bruises, old and new open cuts, several apparent weeping burns, and a CAT scan revealed a subdural hematoma [a collection of blood on the surface of the brain]."
