A Victory for the Christian Schools Project: The College of St. Rose in New York

Caroline Wharton - 31 Mar 2022

In December, 2021, Students for Life of America’s (SFLA) Demetree Institute for Pro-Life Advancement released its Christian Schools Project, investigating all 784 Christian schools across the country to identify any ties these Christian institutions have to the nation’s largest abortion vendor, Planned Parenthood.  

Over the course of SFLA’s Christian Schools project, 38 Christian colleges and universities (which amounted to about 1 in 3 schools) broke ties with Planned Parenthood. This number includes four more victories since our December 8th, 2021, study publication date.

The College of St. Rose, a Catholic institution in New York, is one of them. St. Rose was initially given a C-grade as they had two infractions with Planned Parenthood. The first infraction was the promotion of Planned Parenthood as resource for social justice and advocacy.  

The second infraction was the promotion of Planned Parenthood as an internship opportunity.  

However, on February 25th, 2022, while doing post-publication research on the Christian schools that were found to have a relationship with Planned Parenthood, SFLA researchers found that searches for Planned Parenthood no longer bore results on the College of St. Rose’s website. Therefore, the College of St. Rose’s rating has been updated to an A-grade Christian school.

The purpose of the Christian Schools Project was to call all Christian colleges and universities back to the biblical value of affirming life from conception to natural death. SFLA applauds the College of St. Rose’s efforts to kick Planned Parenthood off their campus, and we hope to see the other 65 Christian colleges and universities who still hold to their relationship with Planned Parenthood follow suit.
