Marquette Law School lists Planned Parenthood among community service opportunities

Catholic World News - January 07, 2010

Marquette University Law School includes Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin on its list of community organizations with which students and faculty “may wish to connect … as a volunteer,” according to the university’s web site.

“From Marquette's mission perspective, leadership entails service,” the web site notes. “Milwaukee is blessed with a wealth of community organizations.”

Listed below are links to many different organizations which serve disadvantaged populations. These are general social service agencies and for the most part do not include direct legal services. Marquette has built a collaborative relationship with many of these organizations. As alumni, faculty, staff or students, you may wish to connect with one of these organizations as a volunteer, or as a resource for a client or someone you know, to find expertise on a particular social issue, or to learn more about the services available in your hometown.

In addition:

  • India McCanse, the former national field coordinator of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, has served as restorative justice coordinator at Marquette University Law School, according to the university’s web site.
  • Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin has taken part in the Marquette University College of Professional Studies’ Future Milwaukee program. Future Milwaukee’s mission is “to develop, motivate and empower diverse, ethical leaders who create positive change in greater Milwaukee through effective civic engagement.”
  • Founded in 1881 by the Jesuit Fathers, Marquette has 11,633 students, 8,012 of whom are undergraduates.

      Marquette has, as the head of its Theology Dept, Prof Dan Macquire(?). He is a dissenting Catholic, former Jesuit, who rejects Church teachings. So effective leading students towards Christ is he that his son converted to Islam. Marquette should clear the rubbish as should most Catholic Colleges. Only then can weask them to be Catholic.
