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 Augustana College, a Christian college in Illinois, is promoting Planned Parenthood as a resource and internship location on its website.
Here is where Planned Parenthood is on the school website:
- Listing them as a resource under the “Sexual Health Resources” tab on the college’s website: https://www.augustana.edu/student-life/TitleIX/sexual-health
- Hiring professors who have a bias so great in support of abortion that it obstructs dialogue on campus: https://www.augustana.edu/academics/faculty-directory/lena-r-hann
Christian colleges should be standing with preborn babies and for human dignity. We want to urge Augustana College President Bahls to remove Planned Parenthood as a resource.
We need your help to contact President Bahls to urge Augustana College 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.
