Catholic Fordham University in New York City features mega abortion provider Planned Parenthood under "internships and job opportunities" for students. The online entry, however, is raising deep concern among young Catholics who believe in the God-given right to life, which naturally extends to the unborn.
TFP Student Action has launched a petition calling for the removal of Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion advocacy groups listed by the university's Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies department. [Link]
"How can a Catholic university favor Planned Parenthood?" said TFP Student Action director John Ritchie. "In good conscience, we can't stay silent and allow the Culture of Death to poison more young minds. No way. Not on a Catholic campus."
"Instead of featuring groups that attack Church teaching, students should be given the names of honorable pro-life organizations that faithfully defend the unborn," continued Ritchie. "And there are so many to pick from."
Planned Parenthood is not the only pro-abortion group listed by Fordham University. Others include the National Organization for Women (NOW-NYC), Amnesty International, and GLAAD, a pro-homosexual advocacy group.
TFP Student Action invites pro-lifers to join its peaceful protest and call for the removal of all pro-abortion groups currently listed online by Fordham.
"You don’t need to be a college student to participate," said Ritchie. "With God’s help, the truth will prevail."
