It's not just the University of San Francisco

The Cardinal Newman Society has identified several other Catholic Universities that provide links to Planned Parenthood on their websites:

DePaul University in Chicago, founded in 1898 by the Vincentians,

boasts of being "The largest Catholic university in the nation." However, DePaul not only links to the pro-abortion Planned Parenthood but goes even further offering its students internships with the pro-abortion organization. (See links verifying DePaul's Planned Parenthood internships: here )

Georgetown University in the nation's capital pride itself on being "founded in 1789" and "the nation's oldest Catholic and Jesuit university." Nonetheless, the Georgetown website links to the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, it also suggests the use of the morning after pill in case of rape. (See Georgetown's sexual health site:

Loyola University in Chicago is one of the largest of the 28 Jesuit universities and colleges in the United States. Besides linking to Planned

Parenthood, the university's women's studies website links to the pro-abortion political group National Organization of Women. (See: here )

Seattle University in Washington links to Planned Parenthood for "wellness" services, the students are urged to "activism" with groups such

as the pro-abortion "National Organization for Women." (See: here and here )

Two other Catholic institutions, Boston College and John Carroll University in Cleveland also offer their students links to Planned Parenthood offices from the university websites.

This information came via the Pro-Life Infonet mailing list, to which you can subscribe to by going here.

A thought strikes me with great force as I read through this: No wonder. No wonder "Catholic" hardly means anything when it comes to moral decision-making. Just imagine if these colleges - and all the other Catholic schools that embody the same attitudes - dedicated themselves to vigorously living out the Gospel of Love, the Gospel of Life instead, presenting it as the positive, liberating truth that it is. What a difference that would make. What a fantasy that is.
