able to help you find it.

There appears to be no online text of the speech. However, there are
three sources from which you might request a copy (no guarantee that

James Killelea (or Killalea, see below) addressed the Democratic
Convention on July 14, 1976 to nominate Ellen McCormack as candidate
for President. The nomination was in opposition to abortion. There was
a seconding speech, also. McCormack received 22 votes in the
convention, which nominated Jimmy Carter and Walter Mondale.

There does not appear to be an online copy of Killelea's speech, but
there are sources online from which it is possible that a copy might
be obtained.
