PROVIDENCE, R.I. — The Roman Catholic preparatory school that Treasurer Gina Raimondo attended has removed a portrait of her following comments she made at Planned Parenthood that aren’t in line with the school’s teachings, a school spokesman said Friday.
La Salle Academy President Thomas Gerrow decided to have the picture taken down from a wall in the school’s main building that displays other notable alumni, according to spokesman Drew Lagace. It was taken down Thursday, the day the Democratic gubernatorial nominee spoke in support of abortion rights and “reproductive freedom.”
“Her comments kind of go against our teachings here at La Salle,” Lagace said. He declined to elaborate and said he did not know if the picture’s removal was permanent.
