Dan Rooney, Steeler owner, disappoints Pittsburgh Pro-Lifers

We, the undersigned, call upon Mr. Dan Rooney, a Steeler Nation icon and allegedly a pro-life Catholic, to rethink his intent to support and campaign for Barack Obama in the 2012 election. President Obama had the worst pro-life record of any presidential nominee in 2008, and has continued to support anti-life legislation. He kicked off his presidency with an executive order reversing the Mexico City Policy, allowing taxpayers dollars to go to Planned Parenthood International. That was quickly followed by Obama authorizing taxpayer funding of embryonic research. He soon thereafter secured two Supreme Court picks that will ensure decades more of Roe v. Wade. In recent weeks, he refused Speaker of the House John Boehner’s attempts to defund Planned Parenthood.

    3 years ago Comments: obama's mandate that forces Catholics and others of conscious to provide health insurance that includes birth control and abortive drugs to their employees is an affront to all people of faith & pro-life Americans. Should Mr. Rooney continue his support for Obama he should be excommunicated from the Church. It's time for the Catholic church to cull these unrepentant "Catholics" from it's midst, Rooney, Pelosi, Sebelius etc..

    3 years ago Comments: I am a Catholic and am completely disappointed in Mr. Rooneys choice in supporting someone who goes against everything our Catholic faith stands for, I will remember him in my prayers and pray that God will place him under conviction for the terrible offense against God's love for the beautiful gift of life.
