President Trump Lambasted for Opposing Infanticide

by Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor September 25, 2020 Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on reaction to President Trump's "Born Alive" executive order: President Trump announced this week that he will sign an executive order mandating that doctors attend to babies born alive, "no matter what the circumstances." The proximate cause of his order is the practice of denying medical care to babies born alive as a result of a botched abortion. The American people are overwhelmingly opposed to late-term abortions. What Trump plans to do goes beyond partial-birth abortion: His executive order is targeted at prohibiting infanticide. Astonishingly, he... Read more →

BILL DONOHUE | CNBNEWS CONTRIBUTOR Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on Fox News and George Soros: On September 16, Newt Gingrich was cut off the air on a Fox News show, “Outnumbered,” for merely mentioning the role that George Soros is playing in fomenting the anti-cop agenda of the left.

Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on a new Trump directive on religious liberty: For many years now, I have said that there is more free speech allowed in your local pub than there is on your local college campus.

OPINION: Pro-Abortion Catholics for Choice Should Fold

Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor September 3, 2020 Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on Catholics for Choice: In 1973, in the year that abortion was legalized, an anti-Catholic group was founded to promote abortion rights.

Guest Opinion: Kamala Harris' Catholic Problem

Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor August 12, 2020 Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the problem Sen. Kamala Harris will have with Catholics: Once Catholic voters learn more about Kamala Harris' positions on an array of moral issues, Joe Biden's vice presidential pick will have a hard time winning them over.

In doing so, she invoked a religious test for the bench, a patently unconstitutional act. Here... Read more →
