Catholic college informs parents whether banks donate to Planned Parenthood

Catholic World News - February 19, 2010

In recent weeks, Catholic World News has documented the links between dozens of Catholic colleges and Planned Parenthood, the nation’s leading abortion provider. Bucking this trend, a Catholic college in California has taken extra efforts to help parents and students avoid doing business with banks that contribute to Planned Parenthood.

“As a Catholic college, we have incorporated into our recommended lender list a rating that indicates whether or not the lender in question supports a ‘culture of life,’” notes the Thomas Aquinas College web site. “We based that determination on the lender's response to the question of whether their corporation contributes to Planned Parenthood.”

Founded in 1971, the college has 340 students, all of them undergraduates.
