What is happening? In this crucial time, the Church has got to stand for what is right, and it must stand up for the unborn.

From The Federalist. On the first of the month, the nation’s only Catholic Spiritan university honored NBC News Washington correspondent Yamiche Alcindor with the school’s inaugural “Duquesne University Award for Ethics and Integrity in Journalism.” Duquesne President Ken Gormley presented Alcindor with the honor at the National Press Club in D.C.

Join others crying out to the Lord day and night.


In an interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette prior to the event, Gormley stated that Alcindor was selected because her journalistic approach aligned with the Congregation of the Holy Spirit’s mission to ensure that “all voices are heard.” He neglected to mention that the honoree, a self-described Catholic, has repeatedly ignored voices supporting the unborn.

During the award ceremony, Alcindor claimed that “every” woman she spoke with on the ground in the 10 to 15 states she visited leading up to this year’s midterm election, including those identifying as conservative, was “uncomfortable” with the decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization that overturned Roe v. Wade.

Alcindor’s recollection is highly unlikely, according to her own broadcast network. NBC News exit polls conducted on Election Day found that 87 percent of Republican women were enthusiastic or satisfied with the overturning of Roe.

The polling data also defied Alcindor’s assertion made during an episode of “The ReidOut” in September that Republican women were “extremely upset” about the reversal of Roe. Earlier in the month, she had also suggested that potential female voters in the battleground states of Florida, Michigan, and Ohio were enthusiastic about the “human right” of abortion. …

Honoring Alcindor wasn’t the first questionable decision by Duquesne related to abortion this year. In April, Gormley signed a letter in support of the University of Pittsburgh’s annual state funding after lawmakers considered providing money directly to students because of Pitt’s horrific fetal tissue experiments that have relied on babies from elective abortions. …
