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“The terms pro-choice and pro-life are outdated, and the conversation is too complicated for that,” she said.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.”

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.

““The terms pro-choice and pro-life are outdated, and the conversation is too complicated for that,” she said.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 The term should be PRO-DEATH since pro-choice is outdated.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.

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".

I think the terms should be "pro-baby murder" and "anti-baby murder." The term "pro-choice" was never accurate, as all kinds of lies, pressure, and propaganda were used to make sure there was only one outcome when a woman walked into a PP "clinic."

I'm glad the PP shills received a cold welcome at this university. I hope their welcome elsewhere becomes as cold.

I also think we're beginning to see the genetic effects of access to easy abortion, which has been here for two generations now. Women with weak maternal instincts have been removing their genes from the population... as have those with liberal tendencies. Fewer of those who would naturally embrace the "easy solution" are being born. Natural selection is at work...

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

An old gal pal of mine from a previous life got a job with AID (a State Department Agency, I believe) and was assigned to pass out condoms in a couple of southeast African countries. She reported great success, particularly in getting the young ladies of those countries to accept the AID handouts.

Some were taking handfuls and then coming back for more. She thought 'no way can these young ladies possibly be having sex that much' and decided to investigate.

It turned out they were using them for hauling water-- a few water filled condoms tied off in buckets got a lot more of the water back to their village rather than sloshing out en route. When she reported this fact to her superiors, they didn't want to hear about it because they were being graded on how many condoms they handed out!

I busted out laughing and told her she was pulling my leg. She swore she was dead serious.

'Pro-choice' to me means allowing States to choose their own abortion laws. The pro-abortion zealots took away that choice back in the '70s.

I’m beginning to feel some hope. Signs around that the boomer’s kids are rebelling (hooray). Karma can be hard and the 60s generation have a LOT of karma stored up. Looking at the March for Life this year showed that the large majority of the crowd was young. All we have to do is start focusing more on the young people. Reaching out to them with the truth will change things quicker than fighting the old guard. Keep remembering that the boomers aborted themselves out of power.
