West Virginia college students overwhelmingly reject Planned Parenthood campus group

HUNTINGTON, WV, February 4, 2013, (LifeSiteNews.com) – Planned Parenthood is not only facing an uphill battle in state legislatures seeking to deprive the organization of taxpayer dollars, it is also receiving a distinctly chilly welcome at some university campuses.

"So many people rejected us. They acted grossed out. They didn't want to talk about it at all," said Jordan Bean, a leader of Vox, the college chapter of Planned Parenthood.

Bean handed out condoms at Marshall University, where she is a senior, but said she had few takers.

“We get a lot of backlash on campus, and people approach us with questions that are hard to answer,” she told The Charleston Gazette.

At least nine other states have no chapter of Vox on any campus.

The Ithaca College chapter of Vox held a “No Pants Party,” encouraging students to wear anything “...just no pants.”

The Gazette reported that Bean's chapter of Vox held a voter registration drive before the 2012 election. (Mitt Romney won 62 percent of West Virginia's popular vote.)

The group also showed the abortion provider's solidarity with the homosexual lobby by holding a day of silence last October to mark the death of Matthew Shepard, the homosexual whose death in a drug robbery became a rallying cry for hate crimes legislation.

The young Mountaineer activist showed she had mastered Planned Parenthood's new language on abortion, jettisoning the term “pro-choice.”

“The terms pro-choice and pro-life are outdated, and the conversation is too complicated for that,” she said. “You don't have to put yourself in a box -- it's more personal than that.”

The term “Pro-Life” will never be outdated.

This is encouraging - I'm going to check out my Alma Mater tomorrow and see where they stand on this.

Young people hate it.

The March on Washington grows every year because of them.

This year’s (2 weeks ago) was like 650,000.

From, http://www.christianpost.com/news/at-march-for-life-rally-leaders-see-growing-youth-presence-88906/

“Hogan, who is also a member of the Knights of Columbus, told The Christian Post that in the past few years the crowd has been getting younger.”

Wash. Post reported it in the road closure news.

what is there to talk about with people in favor of murdering the unborn as the solution to problems?

““The terms pro-choice and pro-life are outdated, and the conversation is too complicated for that,” she said. “You don’t have to put yourself in a box — it’s more personal than that.”

I agree. The term should be PRO-DEATH since pro-choice is outdated.

If kids nowadays really think it through, they have to know how lucky they are to have been the ones who survived abortion — with all the choices women have and the easy access to it.

Good. Because those scumbags probably killed a potential classmate.

start your clocks -
Planned Parenthood receives federal money
That makes them a Federal agency
Refusal to let them on campus puts any federal monies the University make get at risk. (including gubmint cheese)

I would not have been surprised if she had said the terms were "double-plus bad".

Gee, I wonder if the lack of support comes from leftist morons promoting “no pants parties”? Nothing like keeping it classy there, PP.

You don't have to put yourself in "a box"

That's what you're there for, isn't it.
