NARAL, Planned Parenthood among ‘family services’ at web page on Gonzaga site

Catholic World News - December 31, 2009

NARAL Pro-Choice Washington, Planned Parenthood, Planned Parenthood Votes! Washington, and the VOX (Voices for Planned Parenthood) are among the “family services” listed on a web page at Gonzaga University’s web site. Also listed is the DSHS North CSO Clinic, which provides abortion referrals.

The web page is located at figtree.gonzaga.edu. According to Gonzaga University’s student life office, The Fig Tree

is an independent, nonprofit media covering stories of people living their faith and values … The Fig Tree provides a crucial, alternative voice for these times … The Fig Tree’s newspaper, website and TV show inform, inspire and involve people to strengthen their caring, commitment and cooperative action. When people are aware of how others live their beliefs, they are heartened and motivated to take a step in faith, hope, love and unity.

The Fig Tree maintains an office at Unity House on the Gonzaga University campus.

Founded in 1887 by the Jesuit Fathers, Gonzaga University has 7,272 students, 4,517 of whom are undergraduates.

    Gonzaga is certainly a university in the Jesuit tradition. Unfortunately, it also claims to be Catholic. Is there a bishop with responsibility for the Spokane area?
