Mark Shriver, a pro-abortion rights politician, will be honored with the President’s Medal by the Loyola University of Maryland at next month’s commencement ceremony, according to the University’s website.
While a 2002 candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives from Maryland, Mark Shriver stated in a Washington Post interview, “Women’s issues are critically important and I will continue to fight for a women’s right to choose; family planning funds; maternal and child health funding and education for girls both here and abroad.”
The University’s website also touts Shriver being senior vice president of U.S. Programs at Save the Children, a pro-contraceptive charity reportedly associated with Planned Parenthood.
"As members of an institution committed to and strengthened by Jesuit values, our community shares a deep appreciation for Mark Shriver's lifelong commitment to advancing critical social justice initiatives focused on the needs of children," said Fr. Brian F. Linnane, S.J., president of Loyola. "I am confident his address will further inspire the Class of 2014 to go forth from their transformative educational experience at Loyola and pursue personal and professional endeavors that lift up others."
