Loyola's MLK Celebration to Feature Speaker Who Thanked God for Abortion

NEW-Toure
CHICAGO - The Catholic Loyola University of Chicago, is hosting a pro-abortion journalist, who once thanked God for abortion on television, as the keynote speaker of the Jesuit university’s Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration on January 21. The journalist/writer Touré will deliver a speech entitled “How Racism Functions Today.”

Two years ago - on the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade - Touré promoted his support for abortion rights on MSNBC where he recounted the story of a past girlfriend’s abortion and how it “saved [his] life.

Prior to the presidential election in November 2012, Touré sent out a retweet encouraging girls to get abortions immediately “in case the Republicans win.” In 2014, he was accused of anti-Semitism when he suggested that Jewish survivors of the Holocaust benefited from “the power of whiteness.”
