Planned Parenthood presentation on ‘reproductive health’ at Texas Catholic college
Catholic World News - January 18, 2010
A Planned Parenthood presentation on “reproductive health” took place last year at Our Lady of the Lake University, according to the university’s web site. The presentation was conducted by Karina Gil, advocacy manager at Planned Parenthood Trust of San Antonio and South Central Texas.
The event appears to have been hosted by a university program that assists students from migrant worker families. Students with disabilities and other special needs were also invited.
“Feb. 16-- Planned Parenthood. CAMP program invites PSE to attend a presentation regarding reproductive health,” according to the web site of the university, which is based in San Antonio.
CAMP-- the College Assistance Migrant Program-- “is a federally funded program aimed at helping students from migrant or seasonal farm worker families,” notes the web site. “CAMP at OLLU offers effective and integrated first-year personal, academic, and financial support to 25 qualified full-time freshmen.”
Project Student Excellence (PSE), in turn, seeks to “provide an Integrated Student Support Service Program, which will enhance academic achievement through utilization of Comprehensive Educational Services for students who demonstrate academic need and are first-generation college students, students with disabilities, or have financial need.”
Founded in 1895 by the Sisters of Divine Providence, Our Lady of the Lake University has 2,642 students, 1,563 of them undergraduates.
