Half of US Catholic colleges have Planned Parenthood centers nearby, study finds

January 20, 2016

Nearly half of the four-year Catholic colleges in the US are located within five miles of a Planned Parenthood clinic, the Cardinal Newman society has found.

"Catholic colleges didn't invite this situation, but they can respond by demonstrating genuine concern for their students and fighting Planned Parenthood's attempts to lure students into their centers," said Patrick Reilly, president of the Cardinal Newman Society.

    The Catholic students and the Newman Centers at these universities/colleges can form prayer warriors to go to these nearby PP facilities to pray. I am sure this is being done. 40 Days for Life is beginning with Lent, a great time to start.
