Bringing Abortion on Demand to Ireland. Why Would BC Honor the Architect?

Beth graduated from Boston College.  She sent the links below and the contact information.  She is horrified that BC is honoring Enda Kenney, Taoiseach (Prime Minister) of Ireland by giving him an honorary degree and having him speak at graduation

Kenney is trying to change Ireland's abortion laws which now protect babies and their mothers to make them even more permissive than ours.   In 1982, Ireland had a referendum to keep abortion illegal.  MCFL sent over thousands of packets of materials to help with the winning effort.

The pro-life movement in Ireland is working very hard against these laws.  Why, then, would BC honor him?  Please make some calls on your own and to BC alums.  Thanks, Beth, for letting us know what we can do.
