President Obama is scheduled to deliver the commencement address at Notre Dame this spring and not everyone is happy about that.

Well over 100,000 people have signed a petition to the catholic university's president, upset over the decision to invite the president to speak.

Those who are upset cite his pro-choice stance and his decision to funnel federal dollars for stem-cell research.

A White House official says, "While the president is honored to have the support of millions of people of all faiths, including Catholics with their rich tradition of recognizing the dignity of people, he does not govern with the expectation that everyone sees eye to eye with him on every position, and the spirit of debate and healthy disagreement on important issues is part of what he loves about this country."

Protesters are asking the university to, in effect, un-invite President Obama.

What do you think Notre Dame should do?
