Seattle University, a Jesuit Catholic university, is being targeted over its relationship with Planned Parenthood.
The school, which was founded in 1891, is engaging in a relationship with Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion organizations in a way that is entirely inappropriate for a Catholic institution, says Patrick Reilly of the Cardinal Newman Society (CNS).
"Students are actually being referred to Planned Parenthood for so-called 'sexual health issues' which, as we know, Planned Parenthood performs nearly a third of the abortions in the United States," says Reilly. "And promoting internships with Planned Parenthood -- encouraging students to get involved with organizations like the National Organization for Women and other pro-abortion organizations."
The situation has already been brought to the attention of SU president Stephen Sundborg, but so far there has been no communication on the subject.
"There have been calls over the past several weeks for him to put a stop to the internships with Planned Parenthood; and we've not seen a response, but we're hoping that with 16 national Catholic and pro-life leaders calling on the university to make a change, that we will see appropriate changes there," the CNS representative states.
Reilly adds that what his group is asking for is simply that the school abides by the beliefs that it publicly claims to espouse.
The Cardinal Newman Society seeks to "help renew and strengthen Catholic identity in Catholic higher education", according to its website.

In today's post-Vatican II contaminated atmosphere one can only wish the Society the best of luck.
God is on their side while satan is on the phony Catholic school's side.
The Catholic Church is struggling with it’s own internal problems.
Women wanting to be Priests, pedophile Priests,, Priests running Universities who have apparenbtly succombed to libral views, politicians who calim to be Catholic but are pro-abortion. Bishops allowing these things to happen and doing nothing.
Young people are moving to other Church’s.
The Church needs to get this thing under control.
The Jesuits need to have their schools taken away from them en masse.
As usual, Jesuits doing their own thing while common Catholics must follow the rules. Perfect breeding grounds for future “czars”.
