Image 3: Photograph, "Protest against the actions of church officials against Sister Agnes Mary Mansour," 1983, GARW #1995-159, Archives of the University of Notre Dame, Hesburgh Library, Notre Dame, Indiana.
Supporters of Sister Agnes Mary Mansour gather to protest the actions of church officials. Because
Mansour refused to condemn state-funded abortions, she was forced by Vatican officials to choose
between her appointment as Michigan's Director of Social Services, and her life as a Sister of Mercy.
She ultimately chose to retain her government position.
