I’m disappointed that the archbishop has made this decision. – Sen. Claire McCaskill

ST. LOUIS – An invitation to Sen. Claire McCaskill to speak at her daughter’s graduation from a Roman Catholic high school was withdrawn because of her positions on abortion and stem cell research.
Students at all-girls St. Joseph’s Academy in the St. Louis suburb of Frontenac wanted to have McCaskill speak at their commencement this month, McCaskill spokeswoman Adrianne Marsh said Tuesday.
But the offer was rescinded last week. The president of St. Joseph’s, Sister Michaela Zahner, said she reluctantly made the decision after receiving a call from the St. Louis Archdiocese
