Miguel Diaz, Obama’s nominee as ambassador to the Vatican, claims to be pro-life. What evidence exists to support this contention? I find it hard to take this claim seriously, because of his activities in helping to elect the most pro-abortion President in our nation’s history, including serving on his Catholic Advisory Council during the campaign. This from his faculty listing at Saint John’s School of Theology:
“Member of Barack Obama’s Catholic advisory group during the 2008 presidential campaign. In recognition of his participation in the advisory council, Dr. Díaz and his wife Marian received an invitation to the inaugural events. Dr. Díaz’s involvement in the campaign and participation in the inaugural events were both covered extensively in a variety of media.”
I can find no listings for any pro-life activities. I have attempted to research any pro-life activities by him and thus far I have come up with zilch. I would appreciate it if any of our readers could provide me with answers to the following questions.
1. Has he written articles in which he calls for the legal banning of abortions?
2. Has he engaged in political activities on behalf of pro-life candidates?
3. Has he participated in pro-life marches?
4. Has he protested at abortion clinics?
5. Has he volunteered at pro-life crisis pregnancy centers?
6. What pro-life organizations is he a member of?
7. Has he contributed funds to pro-life organizations?
8. Has he written to elected officials in support of pro-life legislation?
9. Has he witten to elected officials in opposition to pro-abortion legislation?
10. Has he done anything which would cause someone to conclude that he is a pro-lifer, other than making the simple assertion that he is?
If one is going to claim to be pro-life, the least he should be able to do is to provide some evidence to support the assertion.
