Protest Opposing Obama's Notre Dame Address Gets Uglier

Anti-choice activists are resorting to extreme measures to protest Notre Dame's invitation to President Obama to deliver a commencement speech. Women on the Web reports that "Anti-abortion groups, including Randall Terry’s Operation Rescue, have vowed to create a 'circus' surrounding Obama’s  May 17 address."  A Notre Dame student blogs about seeing a small plane flying over the campus pulling a banner with a graphic photo of an aborted fetus.  The Associated Press is also reporting about alumni who have been targeted with letters from Operation Rescue sent to their home addresses.
