The White House announced Monday that President Bush plans to nominate Harvard University law professor Mary Ann Glendon to be his new U.S. ambassador to the Vatican, a post that requires Senate confirmation. Glendon, who became visiting professor of law at Harvard in 1974 and a full professor there in 1986, is an anti-abortion scholar and an opponent of gay marriage who also has written on the effects of divorce and increased litigation on society.
