Notre Dame Protest

May 13, 2009

We recently got wind that some of Shepard’s Obama illustrations are being used to protest Obama’s upcoming visit to Notre Dame University. TheĀ images are being used beside those of slaves and graphic photographs of aborted fetuses. The Center for Bio-Ethical Reform Mid West is driving these billboards on semi-trucks around South Bend, Indiana and flying them from planes above the sky where the University is located. We fully support reproductive rights and in no way allowed the CBR to use these illustrations. While we completely support the first amendment, we are saddened to see people manipulate Shepard’s illustration of our President in this manner.
