FAIRFIELD, CONNECTICUT, March 23, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – One of New England’s leading Catholic universities has named a new building after a politician who supports legalized abortion.
Sacred Heart University of Fairfield, Connecticut, describes itself as “the second-largest Catholic university in New England,” providing students “a comprehensive, hands-on education rooted in the liberal arts and Catholic intellectual tradition.”
The university announced it is naming a new building after World Wrestling Entertainment CEO Linda McMahon, who donated $5 million to the school.
McMahon, who ran for Connecticut’s U.S. Senate seat as a Republican in 2010, noted on her website that she is “pro-choice,” although she opposes “partial-birth abortion and federal funding of abortions unless the life of the mother is at stake.”
“I’m in favor of parental notification/parental consent legislation,” she added.
During a debate, a viewer asked, “Mrs. McMahon, how can you possibly defend the total and disgusting degradation of women on World Wrestling?”
McMahon said she remained “incredibly proud of the company that I have helped build from the ground up.”
Although McMahon scored political points after Richard Blumenthal stumbled badly when she asked him, “How do you create a job?” the Democrat defeated her by nearly 12 percentage points. in the general election.
McMahon is attempting to secure the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate again this year.
