The Cardinal Newman Society (CNS) and Students for Life of America (SFLA), along with 14 other pro-life groups, have written a letter to the president of Seattle University calling on him and the school to sever their ties with Planned Parenthood. They say that “Seattle University, as a Catholic and Jesuit institution, has a God-given responsibility to live up to its religious identity,” said Patrick J. Reilly, CNS president. “Such an identity certainly precludes involvement with those organizations facilitating the slaughter of the innocents. May Seattle University today turn a corner and resolve to sever these scandalous connections.”
What're they freaking out about?
Seattle University refers students to PP for sexual health services (our source has that in scare quotes!), allows and promotes internships with PP, hires employees with past experience with PP and highlights that experience on their website, and they've honored students for their past work with PP. The nerve!
We've said it before, and we'll say it again. We stand with Planned Parenthood. Hopefully Seattle University will stand up for their students.
