Catholic College Hosts Speaker Who Once ‘Thanked God’ for Abortion

Via Campus Reform:

Saint Louis University (SLU), a Catholic school in Missouri, hosted a pro-choice speaker last week who thanked God for abortion on national television.

Although the speaker, MSNBC personality Touré Neblett, did not address the issue in his actual remarks at the university, he voiced outspoken support for abortion on MSNBC’s, The Cycle, on Jan. 31.

“I thank God…that when I fell into a bad situation, abortion was there to save me and keep me on a path toward building a strong family I have now,” he said. “I pray that safety net stays in place.”

Touré also stirred controversy last year when he suggested in a tweet that women should hurry to get abortions in case Republicans managed to ban it.

“Girls, get your abortions NOW in case the Republicans win,” he tweeted…

The speech was the Keynote Lecture of SLU’s Black History Month festivities…

Amy Lutz, a member of Students for Life, told Campus Reform that, in her view, bringing Touré to speak was not consistent with the school’s mission and previous pro-life stances.
