McAuliffe's book talk cancelled over abortion views

SYRACUSE, N.Y. Terry McAuliffe's upcoming book talk at his alma mater in Syracuse was cancelled because of his support for abortion rights.

McAuliffe, chairman of Senator Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, was supposed to talk about his best-selling memoir to a group of alumni at Bishop Ludden in Syracuse. But the Syracuse diocese cancelled the appearance after McAuliffe said on a national radio show that he supports abortion rights.

Diocese spokeswoman Danielle Cummings said McAuliffe's public statement violates diocesan policy.


It's nice that the cancellation took place without people having to lobby the bishop (so far as I know). I wish more bishops had the nerve to snub people who oppose equality for unborn children.
