68% Of Students Distrust Planned Parenthood After Seeing Students for Life Display: Students for Life of America has been bringing our "Planned Parenthood Truth" display to college campuses across the country. The display asks students to read real reports from public health departments and mainstream news sources about Planned Parenthood's facilities and their failure to protect women. At the end of the display, students are asked if they trust Planned Parenthood. At Xavier University in Cincinnati, the Students for Life group had 110 conversations. According to the Xavier Newswire, "For 68 percent of respondents to our conversations, Planned Parenthood was undeserving of taxpayer money, and only 19 percent of respondents said they “Strongly Trust” Planned Parenthood with their services and their taxpayer money. Students for Life’s Planned Parenthood Truth display facilitated 110 conversations and caused 33 people who previously trusted Planned Parenthood to reconsider their stance." Lily Hutkowski, a student leader at Xavier University and a Regional Coordinator for Students for Life of America noted, "The positive responses to our display show that when students are told the real truth about what Planned Parenthood does that they will change their mind. In fact, other groups have even had success getting students to cancel their appointments after seeing the display."   https://twitter.com/StudentsforLife/status/1114716979263410176   The results from the display mirror the results that the Institute for Pro-Life Advancement, the research arm of Students for Life of America, found when they polled Millennials on issues like Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood, but actually explained the true effects. Our poll found, for example,
  • 7 of 10 Millennials support limits on abortion through specific policies like parental notification, limiting abortions later in pregnancy like at 5 months of pregnancy, and opposition to government funding of abortion.

  • Only 7 percent shared the position of the Democratic Party Platform – abortion without any exceptions and funded by tax dollars.

  • More Millennials than not support Roe’s reversal. Asked directly about support for overturning Roe and returning abortion to the states, 41 percent supported Roe’s reversal.

  • 65 percent of Millennials support the right to vote on abortion-related policy and want a voice on abortion policy

  • 56 percent of Millennials, oppose selling Chemical Abortion drugs on-line or dropping the requirement for a physical exam because of the risks to women.

  • By about a 3 to 1 margin (48 percent to 17 percent), Millennials said they preferred that their tax monies went to Federally Qualified Health Centers rather than the abortion giant, Planned Parenthood.

  • 51 percent said that they opposed Roe, when they understood it allows for abortion through all 9 months of pregnancy
