The College Fix is reporting that Planned Parenthood has been supplying contraceptives to Boston College Students for Sexual Health, the non-College affiliated student-run group that has run afoul of the school for distributing condoms on campus.
“We … partner with the Planned Parenthood at the Babcock stop on the B Line; they give us a lot of condoms, information, free swag,” said student group Chairwoman Lizzie Jekanowski in an email to The College Fix, which reports:
In addition to Planned Parenthood, Boston College Students for Sexual Health receives free condoms from a female condom company called FC2 and also the American Condom Campaign, run by Trojan, which gives 1,000 to 1,500 condoms a semester to the group, according to Jekanowski.
She added they also partner with a national organization called Advocates for Youth, which focuses on youth activism for reproductive and homosexual rights. That organization gives the campus club $400 a semester.
Jekanowski admitted that the student-run group is an official Planned Parenthood Vox: College Reproductive Rights Group.
Earlier this year, the administration threatened disciplinary action against the students if they continued distributing the condoms on campus. The students have refused to stop.
