Colorado Catholic college: ‘Hands-on experience’ at Planned Parenthood

Catholic World News - January 20, 2010

The psychology department of a Jesuit university in Colorado notes that it has placed students in internships with dozens of local agenices, including Planned Parenthood.

“Psychology majors can gain ‘hands on’experience of the discipline through the internship program at Regis University,” according to the university’s web page. “This experience can complement the instruction students receive in the classroom, broaden the student's perspective of psychology, and help students make career decisions.” Planned Parenthood is listed among the agencies with where students have gained this "hands on experience."

In addition, nursing professor Dr. Diane Ernst once served as an advisory committee member of Planned Parenthood of Mid-Iowa, according to her CV, which is posted on the university’s web site.

Founded in 1887 by the Jesuits, Regis University has 11,040 students, 5,706 of them undergraduates.

    We do not need "hands on experience" to know if something is against our faith. I do not have to stand in the middle of the road and be hit by a truck in order to find out it will cause me harm. I believe they should rethink what they are doing in this area with Planned Parenthood.
