President Joe Biden is skipping his previously-planned commencement address at Notre Dame – breaking with recent tradition – after fierce backlash erupted among students and alumni over his abortion policies.

President George W. Bush and Barack Obama, as well as Vice President Mike Pence, all spoke at the Catholic college in their first year in office. Joe Biden, the second Catholic President, and his failure to speak at the commencement will break this streak.

Fox News reports that over 4,300 “members of the Notre Dame community” signed a petition calling for the college to disinvite the 46th president over his long record of advocating for pro-abortion policies.

Biden gave two commencement addresses this week, one in-person to the Coast Guard Academy and one virtually to Syracuse University. The White House said Biden has a scheduling conflict.

The petition said the writers are “dismayed by the pro-abortion and anti-religious liberty agenda of President Joe Biden.”  

“He rejects Church teachings on abortion, marriage, sex and gender and is hostile to religious liberty. He embraces the most pro-abortion and anti-religious liberty public policy program in history. The case against honoring him is immeasurably stronger than it was against honoring President Obama,” it states.
