You’d think that a Catholic university “in the Jesuit and Mercy tradition” might realize that sending its graduates to work for an organization that has the murder of children as a central mission is a violation of those very principles. So then why is University of Detroit Mercy listing Planned Parenthood on its career placement web site?
The “Career Education Center” UDM website lists Planned Parenthood as a career opportunity for students. Pointing to the website for Planned Parenthood, the UDM career website suggests that Planned Parenthood “Lists dozens of clinical and non-clinical positions at Planned Parenthood clinics and similar organizations.” (see: http://www.udmercy.edu/cecc/diverse.htm )
Planned Parenthood is the largest provider of abortions in the United States. They murdered 255,015 children by surgical abortion in 2005, and that doesn’t include the countless others killed by chemical abortion.
This is like Hebrew University listing the local Nazi Party branch on its career placement web site.
Unfortunately, the college has already placed a graduate at an abortuary, who now works as a “clinician.”
Meanwhile the Women’s Studies department also links to Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Rights Action League on its web page, as well as the National Organization for Women.
This reminds me of the blogstorm back in late 2002/early 2003 when I first posted that University of San Francisco was linking to abortion clinics from its “pregnancy help information” page for students. I then found similar information on a number of other Catholic college web sites, including Boston College. That lead to an article in Catholic World Report. When the furor had peaked, the schools took the links and pages down. I figured it was only a matter of time before such things came back. Time for another blogstorm.
