Students for Life of America is launching a new initiative that focuses on removing the abortion industry from Christian colleges and universities across the country. This is important because the abortion industry targets college-aged women. The Guttmacher Institute, Planned Parenthood’s research arm, reports that women aged 18-24 make up 42% of abortions in the United States. This is precisely why Planned Parenthood builds its facilities close to college campuses. A study by Students for Life of America found that 78.8% of Planned Parenthood facilities were located less than five miles from a college campus.
As part of this initiative, we discovered that Augsburg University, a Christian college in Minnesota, is promoting Planned Parenthood as a resource and internship location on its website.
Here is where Planned Parenthood is on the school website:
- Planned Parenthood is currently listed as a Women’s Resource Center Resource: https://www.augsburg.edu/wrc/resources/clinics/
- Planned Parenthood is currently listed as an Emergency Contraceptive Resource: https://www.augsburg.edu/wrc/resources/emergency-contraception/
- Planned Parenthood is currently listed as a Counseling Service Resource: https://www.augsburg.edu/wrc/resources/counseling/
- Planned Parenthood is currently listed as a Center for Wellness and Counseling Resource: https://www.augsburg.edu/cwc/student-health-care/sexual-health/
- Planned Parenthood is currently listed as a LEAD Community Partner: https://www.augsburg.edu/leadfellows/partner/
- Planned Parenthood was involved in a school Caucus Night: https://www.augsburg.edu/green/2020/02/25/are-you-caucusing-tonight/
- Planned Parenthood was allowed to participate in a school Sexual Health Fair: https://amail.augsburg.edu/2020/02/10/epic-sexual-health-fair-tonight/
Christian colleges should be standing with preborn babies and for human dignity. We want to urge Augsburg University President Pribbenow to remove Planned Parenthood as a resource.
We need your help to contact President Jones to urge Augsburg University to cut ties with Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion vendor. Take action by calling and emailing the college using our Digital Action Center here.
