Omaha, NE – Executive Director of the Nebraska GOP Ryan Hamilton has urged Creighton University to find a new commencement speaker for 2019 after the university announced it would honor pro-abortion advocate Bob Kerrey.
“Bob Kerrey voted five separate times against banning the grisly and inhumane practice of partial birth abortion while in the United States Senate,” Hamilton said. “He has a lifetime score with the National Right to Life of just 4 percent, putting him in the company of some of the country’s most extreme abortion advocates.”
“Creighton is a Jesuit institution formally affiliated with the Catholic Church, one of the country’s most consistent and reliable advocates for pro-life causes,” Hamilton continued. “Nebraska is a pro-life state and Republicans are a pro-life party. We strongly urge Creighton to take a stand for their pro-life values and find a more appropriate figure to honor at their upcoming commencement.” Creighton rescinded an invitation to a pro-abortion author in 2007 after the author’s beliefs became widely known.
