William A. Donohue, PhD Biography

President of Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights
Con to the question "Is the ACLU Good for America?"

“It may surprise some of you to learn that the ACLU takes up 80 percent of all the pro-abortion cases in the Supreme Court. 80 percent! They have almost a monopoly on it. (…) [It] comes down to bucks, people. There is more money in it than some of the other things they look at. Partial birth abortion? ‘The kid is 80 percent born? Kill the kid.’ That is what the ACLU says.”
