Chicago Catholic college posts internship for Planned Parenthood PR position

Catholic World News - January 06, 2010

The School of Communication at Loyola University Chicago posted an internship for an e-publicist at Planned Parenthood of Illinois, according to the university’s web site.

“Planned Parenthood of Illinois’ online advocacy program consists of over 20,000 members and annually generates tens of thousands of messages to legislators,” the internship posting notes. “Our e-advocacy program plays a critical role in moving pro-choice initiatives and is building a powerful voice for grassroots activism on choice issues throughout the state.”

“Communication internships help students integrate their career objectives and educational preparation in the challenging and expanding fields of communication studies, journalism and advertising/public relations, which demand practical experience and diversified skills reaching beyond the classroom,” according to the university.

Loyola University Chicago’s women’s studies and gender studies program also lists Planned Parenthood among health-related services on its “Loyola Univesity Chicago- Resources” pages, according to the university’s web site.

In addition:

  • Christine C. George, senior research fellow , worked as an organizational consultant for Planned Parenthood Midwest Region for three years
  • sociology professor Judith Ginsberg Wittner was invited by Planned Parenthood to speak at the College of Charleston in 2005 on “Jane and the Women’s Liberation Abortion Collective”
  • the university’s Office of Career Services posts models resumes by “Laura M. Law-School” and “Frederick M. Flinstone” that include a year spent as counselor/volunteer coordinator for Planned Parenthood of Georgia
