Massachusetts Catholic college: Contact Planned Parenthood for emergency contraception

Catholic World News - February 18, 2010

A Massachusetts Catholic college’s “emergency contraception options and resources” list includes links to Planned Parenthood of Massachusetts and to the state government’s “access to emergency contraception” web site. The list is found of the web page of the Stonehill College Women’s Center, which also offers links to gay activist organizations.

In addition, the college’s Book of Majors-- published in 2005 by the Office of Academic Services-- lists “Planned Parenthood counselor” among “professional careers” for gender studies majors.

Founded in 1948 by the Congregation of the Holy Cross, Stonehill College has 2,426 students, all of them undergraduates.

    It seems like CC has one article like this every day. I had no idea there were so many colleges that claim to be Catholic and then act contrary to the Church's intent. (What that means is that I had no idea there were so many so-called Catholic colleges.)
