NOTRE DAME, Indiana (LifeSiteNews.com) - White House Secretary Robert Gibbs stated today that N. will give the commencement address at Notre Dame University this year.

In 2004, the United States of Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) approved a policy statement called "Catholics in Political Life," which says, with reference to pro-abortion politicians, "They should not be given awards, honors or platforms which would suggest support for their actions."
President N. has been called the "abortion president" by pro-life activists, and his appearance at the university would appear to violate the USCCB's policy against honoring pro-abortion politicians.
