Planned Parenthood has infiltrated American Christianity.
According to a new report by Students for Life of America’s Demetree Institute for Pro-Life Advancement, one in eight Christian colleges and universities in the nation had a relationship with Planned Parenthood.
Some Christian schools offered school credit for internships with Planned Parenthood. Others referred students to the Abortion Goliath as a “trusted resource.”
This fall, Students for Life launched a campaign to contact each of these schools insisting they cut ties with the Abortion Goliath.
The goal of SFLA’s Christian Schools Project is to raise public awareness of Christian schools maintaining relationships with Planned Parenthood and encourage schools with infractions to restore their Christian values by cutting ties with the abortion giant.
At the time of publication, one in 11 Christian schools maintains a relationship with Planned Parenthood.
That’s down from one in eight at the start of the Project.
Initially, more than 100 Christian colleges and universities out of the 784 surveyed were found to have a relationship with Planned Parenthood.
This number dropped below 70 after Students for Life privately contacted each school to urge administrators to cut ties with Planned Parenthood.
Despite dozens of victories, many Christian schools remain defiant.
One Free Methodist university in Washington State lists Planned Parenthood as a “learning mentor” on their website. Another United Methodist school in Texas gave school credit for internships at Planned Parenthood.
According to their most recent annual report, Planned Parenthood committed 354,871 abortions in the last year.
“Our research exposes the unholy partnership between a number of Christian schools and the Planned Parenthood Abortion Goliath,” said Kristan Hawkins, President of Students for Life of America.
“Christians have always led the fight to dismantle abortion violence, but our efforts are compromised when institutions that lay claim to our faith undermine that faith by partnering with and lending credibility to the anti-Christian abortion industry.”
“We will abolish abortion in our lifetime, and we expect every Christian school to either stand with us in that battle for life, or disassociate themselves with the Christian faith. Either you follow Christ, or you don’t. There is no in-between.”
Students for Life – the largest and most effective pro-life youth group in the nation with over 1,250 active campus groups – has launched a petition targeting presidents of Christian colleges and universities urging them to cut ties with Planned Parenthood.
