In the new US Congress, most of the representatives who graduated from Jesuit-run colleges and universities are strongly in favor of legal abortion, according to a study by Matthew Archbold of the Cardinal Newman Society.
Analyzing voting records by the criteria furnished by the National
Right to Life Committe, Archbold found that among the 12 Jesuit-educated
members of the Senate, only two are reliable pro-life votes, while two
others have mixed voting records and the remaining eight were
consistently in favor of legal abortion.
In the House of
Representatives, 12 of the 44 Jesuit alumni are consistently pro-life;
most of the others voted consistently for legal abortion, although
several had mixed voting records.
