Duquesne University has ordered WDUQ-FM to stop airing underwriter support messages from the reproductive rights and health-care education group Planned Parenthood.
The National Public Radio affiliate and jazz station, which is based on the Duquesne University campus and operates under the university's 501(c)3 tax-exempt status, pulled the underwriting acknowledgement messages Thursday.
"Planned Parenthood is not aligned with the university's Catholic mission and identity and legally, stations are not required to accept underwriting support," said Bridget Fare, Duquesne University spokeswoman

Ok...I’ll ask. What the hell are “reproductive rights?”
I would suggest that those who are concerned about the unborn look closely at the finances for Susan G. Komen Foundation. They contribute to Planned Parenthood in each of their districts.
The right to be born, if you ask me.
You notice that it’s not “life rights”.
liberal speak for abortion.
In China, it would be the right to produce more than one child.
DUQ broadcasting NPR in the first place is questionable given the Colleges Catholic chrarter and NPR’s blatant liberal agenda.
“”Ok...Ill ask. What the hell are reproductive rights?
liberal speak for abortion.”
Guess that sounds better than “fetus murder rights.”
Looks like the cafeteria is closing.
“liberal speak” such as this shows the evil that embodies their ideology.
God gave us warning to watch out for such speech - calling evil good and good evil.
See: Isaiah 5:20-21

Originally, in the old Supreme Court cases, it was basically the right to have as many or as few children as you wish, the right to have access to contraception (Catholic-heavy populations often voted for pols who would make such things illegal), etc. It wasn't in the Constitution, of course, but it was included under the "fundamental right" umbrella anyway, since, if we cannot reproduce, we cannot have a nation!
There are some amazing cases in our history... one of my all-time favorite quotes was, "3 generations of idiots is enough" when deciding to sterilize a ward of the state against her will. (See Buck v Bell... and this was Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes!)
However, today the Left has, as they are wont to do, re-defined the term to exclusively mean the right to choose to terminate a pregnancy, since it is a decision impacting family size.
Here’s one girl who survived someone else’s “choice” to kill her:
I’ve known about this for some time. Now if S.G.K. Foundation is suppose to fund breast cancer research, why give money to another group that is probably (most likely) to be a cause of breast cancer? I never give money to any charity, the reason most money goes to advertising their cause. Very little of what monies are received by charities is used for the intended purpose. I get upset(the previous statement is extremely understated).
