Seattle University, a Jesuit Catholic university, is promoting internships with Planned Parenthood and asking students to get involved with the National Organization for Women and other pro-abortion organizations.
“Students are actually being referred to Planned Parenthood for so-called ‘sexual health issues’ which, as we know, Planned Parenthood performs nearly a third of the abortions in the United States. … There have been calls over the past several weeks for him [SU president Stephen Sundborg] to put a stop to the internships with Planned Parenthood; and we’ve not seen a response”—Patrick Reilly of the Cardinal Newman Society (CNS)
Far too many Catholic universities are run by priests who have succumbed to academe’s leftist views and political correctness. Until the Magisterium gets off the fence, supporters of pro-life causes would be better served if they donated their time and money to anti-abortion groups that are not affiliated with the Catholic Church.
