TFP Student Action is glad to announce that Le Moyne College – a Catholic institution in Syracuse, New York – has removed Planned Parenthood job offers from its web site as of March 1, 2019.
Three job positions for Planned Parenthood were displayed online since November 29, under "current jobs available." The listing was pulled less than 24 hours after the TFP Student Action launched its protest, which garnered more than 16,000 signatures urging the president of Le Moyne College, Dr. Linda M. LeMura, to remove the pro-abortion job offers.
"It's impossible to be a good Catholic and support procured abortion in any form, either directly or indirectly," said TFP Student Action director, John Ritchie. "The Fifth Commandment is crystal clear and we have a moral obligation to proclaim the truth and oppose the Culture of Death in its entirety: contraception, abortion, euthanasia, impurity, same-sex 'marriage' and transgenderism."
Those who sent a personal message of concern to Le Moyne College received a standard reply, stating that the job postings were a mistake.
"Le Moyne College receives many job postings from various sources that we list on our website,” the email from the Office of the President stated. "Unfortunately, the positions in question were not screened by the College as they should have been and were inadvertently posted. They have been removed from the listing."
"Moving forward," the statement continued, "the College will take steps to ensure a more thorough review of employment opportunities to make certain they are consistent with our values as a Catholic institution."
TFP Student Action volunteers are grateful to everyone who participated in this effort.
May God bless you and reward you!
