Boston College Deletes Planned Parenthood from List of Internships

Good news to report: Your voice for moral values is making a difference.

On October 17, TFP Student Action invited its members to ask Boston College to remove Planned Parenthood from its web site where the abortion provider was listed under "Internship Programs."

More than 8,000 pro-life students and parents voiced their concern by signing a TFP petition addressed to Fr. William P. Leahy, S.J., president of Boston College, asking him to delete the entry for Planned Parenthood.

The pro-abortion entry was swiftly deleted.

"In less than 48 hours, Planned Parenthood's name was scrubbed off the Catholic college's web site," said TFP Student Action director John Ritchie.

"We applaud the correction and hope the underlying cause which led to the pro-abortion group's appearance in the first place is also addressed so that the spirit and doctrine of Holy Mother Church is upheld in every facet of the academy, now and in the future," said Ritchie.

"Catholic universities must never favor the culture of death in any way, but rather be bold champions of virtue and staunch defenders of innocent life."

TFP Student Action is grateful to everyone who took the time to voice their concern and stand up for the unborn, against the sin of procured abortion. God bless them all. Let us continue to be vigilant and fight so that procured abortion becomes unthinkable in America.
