Woman Trustee Resigns From Notre Dame Board of Trustees

After it was disclosed that she contributed $25,000 to Emily’s List, Roxanne Martino has resigned from the board of trustees of the University of Notre Dame. The Cardinal Newman Society, formed in 1993 to strengthen Catholic identity in Catholic higher education, had voiced objection to the contributions because Emily’s List supports many pro-choice women candidates. The society also objected to Martino’s contributions to the Chicago Foundation for Women, which reportedly has ties to Planned Parenthood.

Martino, who is president and CEO of Aurora Investment Management, a firm that has $8 billion in asssets under management, reportedly did not know that the organizations she supported financially were associated with pro-choice positions.
