Marquette University theology professor Dan Maguire is, perhaps, the most well-known abortion proponent on campus.
Daniel Maguire is a tenured professor in the theology department at Marquette and an emeritus member of PPWI’s board. Maguire’s views on Catholicism and abortion resulted in then-Archbishop [now Cardinal] Dolan banning Maguire from all Archdiocesan churches.
As you can see from Maguire’s official bio, he makes no secret of his pro-abortion views. His most recent book was titled, “Sacred Rights: The Case for Contraception and Abortion in World Religions.”
From the Marquette U College Republicans:
Abortion Debate: Liberal Professor Bails on Marquette Students
Pro-Choice Theology Professor Dan Maguire Cancels Appearance at Abortion Debate
Milwaukee, WI — The College Republicans at Marquette University were eagerly anticipating a debate on abortion set for March 1st. The organization had booked Marquette theology professor Dan Maguire, S.T.D., an outspoken pro-choice liberal, and Dr. Mike Adams, a professor at the University of North Carolina – Wilmington and an energetic pro-life advocate. The debate was to be funded in part by the Marquette University Student Government Activity Fee and Young America’s Foundation.
After researching his opponent, Dr. Maguire told the College Republicans he could not participate in the debate because “[Adams] would not want to debate me in theology since he is not a theologian and could not argue a theological position with professional competence.” Mike Adams is a professor in the Criminal Justice department at UNC-Wilmington.
Dr. Adams responded, “Professor Daniel Maguire says I lack the competence to defend a theological position on abortion. I’m no theologian. But I do understand ‘Thou Shalt Not Kill’.”
Event organizer Maggie Gervase said, “The goal of the debate was to bring the abortion discussion to campus. We wanted the two professors to develop a debate that would resonate with students; a debate on theological arguments alone would bore students.”
