Franciscan University of Steubenville has announced that it is offering credit to students who participate in an intensive pro-life training program this summer, according to the University.
The National Right to Life Academy, located at the Washington, D.C., offices of the National Right to Life Committee, gives students a comprehensive pro-life education over the course of five weeks. Students in the program study the issues of abortion, euthanasia, embryonic stem cell research, and cloning.
Participants in the National Right to Life Academy, which begins on June 27, are eligible for three academic credits through Franciscan's Human Life Studies Program. Here's more from the University:
Dr. Stephen Krason, Franciscan University political science professor and president and co-founder of the Society of Catholic Social Scientists, spearheaded the endeavor.
"The academy's program gives college students a strong intellectual foundation in the many different aspects of the life issues: medical, scientific, ethical, legal, and historical, and helps to shape the skills that will enable them to better communicate intelligently and cogently the pro-life message,” Krason said. ...
Students can apply the credits from the program to a degree from Franciscan University or transfer them to their respective colleges. ...
Students are trained to become effective pro-life advocates both on their college campuses and in their future careers.
