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 West Virginia Wesleyan College, a Christian college in Buckhannon, West Virginia is promoting Planned Parenthood as a training opportunity.
Here is where Planned Parenthood is on the school website:
- Planned Parenthood hosted a training session on campus: https://www.theintermountain.com/news/local-news/2018/02/free-training-session-planned-at-wesleyan-college/
- Planned Parenthood spoke did a training on campus: https://www.acluwv.org/en/events/confronting-rape-culture-buckhannon
Christian colleges should be standing with preborn babies and for human dignity. We want to urge West Virginia Wesleyan College President Thierstein to remove Planned Parenthood as a training opportunity.
We need your help to contact President Thierstein to urge West Virginia Wesleyan 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.
