The Elms College, Chicopee, graduation speaker: blatantly pro-ab Congressman!

Thanks to Dennis for passing on this information from the Newman Society!  Dennis has written to Bishop Rozanski and President Reap.  I have included contact info in case you also wish to contact them  Anne
College of Our Lady of the Elms (Elms College) in Chicopee, Mass., will host Congressman John Lewis of Georgia as the College's 2015 commencement speaker on  May 16. As previously reported  by the Newman Society, the College chose Lewis for his "personal and political focus on civil rights," despite a consistent pro-abortion voting record. He earned 100 percent ratings with the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) Pro-Choice America in 2013 and 2014 Lewis voted against banning partial-birth abortions, barring minors from crossing state lines to procure abortions, and requiring minors to involve responsible adults before having an abortion. Lewis also co-sponsored the Women's Health Protection Act, which would effectively prohibit medical professionals from recommending ultrasounds or other procedures to women considering abortion. Additionally, he voted in favor of increased federal funding for contraception and embryonic stem cell research.
