Students for Life of America (SFLA) is setting forth on a national tour of colleges across the United States – including several Catholic colleges – to combat the efforts of Planned Parenthood which they say targets college students, according to SFLA’s website.
“Planned Parenthood preys off young girls in crisis, locating right near our high schools and college campuses, telling them abortion is their only real option in their moment of desperation,” according to the website. In fact, it notes that 79 percent of Planned Parenthood centers are located within five miles of a college campus.
In all, the tour will go 18,041 miles, reaching 41 colleges and universities through 20 states over eight weeks. Its aim is to educate students about Planned Parenthood’s real motives and turn students toward pro-life, pregnancy resource centers.
SFLA will explain to students that Planned Parenthood provides poor quality birth control; according to a February 2005 issue of Consumer Reports, two of Planned Parenthood’s condom lines ranked the lowest out of all the brands that they tested. They’ll also show that the abortion Goliath made more than $150 million in revenue from the more than 300,000 abortions they performed in 2011.
Included are several Catholic colleges including Regis University in Colorado, Santa Clara University, Gonzaga University, LaSalle University and the University of St. Thomas in Houston.
