Planned Parenthood is sole pregnancy resource in Catholic college’s ‘Youth to College’ handbook

Catholic World News - February 10, 2010

The “resource toolkit” of a handbook published by a Catholic college in California includes only one pregnancy-related resource: the Planned Parenthood Kearny Mesa Clinic in San Diego. According to the University of San Diego, “The ‘Youth to College’ program is designed to address the important issue of students from underrepresented groups who do not know that higher education can be a viable option for them.”

In addition, the University of San Diego’s career services office describes the International Planned Parenthood Federation as a “global humanitarian organization” that “provide[s] healthcare to [the] needy,” according to the college’s web site. The office also includes the Planned Parenthood Federation of America among its online resources for international study and work and desribes the organization as providing “reproductive care education and assistance.” Other resources for international study and work include ACORN and organizations that advocate for population control.

Founded by the Diocese of San Diego and the Religious of the Sacred Heart, the University of San Diego has 7,832 students, 5,119 of them undergraduates.

    In addition to ACORN they list the following: Episcopal Church of the U.S.A.- Religious Freedom Episcopal Church Volunteers For Mission- Religious Service and others. Why would a Catholic college be suggesting careers as missionaries for other faiths?
