Fairfield University recently announced plans to host actress, same-sex marriage activist, and Planned Parenthood promoter America Ferrera to speak at its “signature lecture series,” the Open Visions Forum, on October 7.
Best known for her role on the television show Ugly Betty, Ferrera, a Catholic, is also a well-known activist for Planned Parenthood, having headlined numerous events for the abortion giant including its “Playing Politics With Women’s Health: The 2012 Election and Why It Matters” luncheon put on by the Planned Parenthood Action Fund. She also hosted the event at which Planned Parenthood bestowed its highest honor, the Margaret Sanger award, to Hillary Rodham Clinton.
As an activist for same-sex marriage, Ferrera appeared in a commercial urging voters to vote against Proposition 8, which legally codified marriage as between a man and a woman.
Fairfield, on its website, describes the forum this way: “The search for truth and an unyielding belief in freedom of expression without biased prejudice or narrowing intolerance serves our University, our community, and the nation.”
