A Victory for the Christian Schools Project: Felician University in New Jersey

Caroline Wharton - 30 Mar 2022

Since 2019, Students for Life of America’s (SFLA) Demetree Institute for Pro-Life Advancement has conducted research and rated 784 Christian schools across the country to identify any ties between these Christian institutions 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 of the schools that had been affiliated with the abortion vendor) broke ties with Planned Parenthood. This number includes four additional victories achieved since our December 8th, 2021 Christian Schools Project publication date.

Felician University, a Catholic institution in New Jersey, is one of those four schools. Felician was initially given a grade B for the promotion of Planned Parenthood in their PsyD handbook as an external referral for students. Per our grading system, Christian schools with one infraction were considered to be “in a relationship” with Planned Parenthood and received a B grade as a result.  View screenshots of infractions below:

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 Felician University website. Therefore, Felician University’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 Felician University’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.
