Former President Bill Clinton will deliver a lecture on his career in politics at Georgetown University on April 30, according to the University’s website.
Clinton, who is pro-abortion rights, revoked the Mexico City Policy and vetoed a bill banning partial birth abortion. He vowed a litmus test on abortion for appointing judges in an interview in 1992, according to EWTN.
President Clinton also promised to sign the "Freedom of Choice Act" (FOCA) which would have essentially nullified all state limitations on abortion.
Just last year, Clinton endorsed same-sex marriage when he supported legislation in Illinois.
The talk on Wednesday will be Clinton’s second lecture at Georgetown, his alma mater.
“This is an historic day on our campus,” Georgetown President John DeGioia reportedly said about Clinton’s lecture last year. “We celebrate the inaugural lecture in a series that we believe will have a deep and meaningful impact not just within our university community but throughout the academy and the world of policy, politics and global affairs.
This four-lecture series takes place over a number of years. The lectures will be webcast live on Georgetown’s website.
