Girl, Planned Parenthood sticker stay at Catholic school

CWN Editor's Note: Sacred Heart School in Greenwich, Conn., had told a student she would be required to leave if she did not remove a Planned Parenthood sticker from her computer. The school backed down after “the decision drew fierce backlash from alumnae who threatened to stop donating to the school and instead donate to the pro-abortion rights group.”

    The girl should have removed the Planned Parenthood sticker from her computer; it has no business being in a Catholic school at all. What is needed is better catachesis to inform the students and their parents about organizations that do not respect the right to life. I wonder why an alumnus of a Catholic school would stick up for Planned Parenthood to begin with?

    Even though it might be preferable to shutter the school instead of bowing to the pro-abortion parents lobbying, Shame on the alumnae who uttered such threats.
