Catholic League President Bill Donohue compared pro-choice groups to neo-Nazis today — and suggested that Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius’s visit to Georgetown University is similar to the visit of a racist or an anti-semite.
In an appearance on Fox News, Donohue, a long-time anti-choice advocate, expressed outrage at Georgetown’s choice of Sebelius for commencement speaker, saying that the administration official is no better than a hatemonger:
Remember, Georgetown has no neo-Nazi clubs or skinhead clubs on campus, nor should they. But they have two – two!! – pro-abortion clubs at Georgetown University. Now they’re bringing in Kathleen Sebelius. They wouldn’t bring in an anti-semite, nor should they. They wouldn’t bring in a racist, nor should they. But they’re bringing in a pro-abortion champion, and they shouldn’t.
In fact, the pro-choice groups on Georgetown campuses are not financed by the school, and cannot use any inside space at the University. They are not even permitted use the school’s team nickname, Hoyas, in their name (the pro-choice group is named H*yas for Choice).
Donohue is no stranger to inflammatory language: The Catholic League got itself into some hot water last month when they said Democratic strategist and CAP Action board member Hilary Rosen was unfit to parent because she is a lesbian.
