Three Christian universities have decided to stop promoting Planned Parenthood to students after receiving information from Students for Life Action.

Lubbock Christian University, affiliated with Churches of Christ in Texas; Clarks Summit University, a Baptist college in Pennsylvania; and Pepperdine University, affiliated with the Churches of Christ in California, were three of over 70 Christian schools that received a letter of concern from Students for Life Action regarding their promotion of the abortion industry to students. Each of those schools listened to what Students for Life had to say and decided to remove Planned Parenthood from their student resources page on their websites. Leaders from the schools also offered thanks to the pro-life organization and Lubbock Christian University even replaced the Planned Parenthood information with a link to a local, pro-life pregnancy center.

Students for Life Action wrote:

Our concerns were heard, and the links were removed from their websites. The Vice President for University Relations, Warren McNeill, from Lubbock Christian University, thanked us for bringing it to his attention and even replaced the Planned Parenthood link with a link to the local, life-affirming, pregnancy resource center.

President Lytle from Clarks Summit University thanked us and said that they strongly believe in the sanctity of life and that he was not aware of the link on their site. Pepperdine’s Vice President DeWalt thanked us and said that they had Planned Parenthood removed from their website immediately.

In the fall, Seattle University — a Catholic school — also removed Planned Parenthood from its website after being contacted by Students for Life, and the Catholic school, College of St. Scholastica, removed links to Planned Parenthood in March.

Students for Life of America has over 1,200 pro-life student groups at high schools and colleges across the nation. Each is actively working to change hearts and minds on abortion and nearly 100,000 students have been trained to share the pro-life message effectively. The organization says it actively engages in “industry impact” focusing on ending the influence of the abortion industry on students, schools, and communities. The goal is to direct people away from abortion businesses.

According to Students for Life’s research, 79 percent of all abortion businesses are located within five miles of colleges. College-aged women are frequently told by the abortion industry that they cannot succeed in college as a pregnant or parenting woman. Countless women, however, have proven this claim wrong. Women do not need abortion in order to accomplish their goals. With life-affirming support from their schools and communities, women can achieve great success and keep their babies too.

Because the termites have more people in the positions that write policies than the decent folks, who don't even particularly notice.

At least they responded in a positive way to the info

However, how does any Christian institution ever think abortion was ok in the first place

Well all of Ninivah responded to Jonah repented so thank God these Christian schools saw the light

Now I wonder how many Christian students have been foooed enough in the past to loose their faith because such schools used to it still do teach heresy as fact?

$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Matthew 6:21, “No one can serve two Masters; either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to one and despise the other.”

You cannot serve God and Mammon (money/riches/wealth & power)!”

Because that are not really Christian schools anymore. Back in the 90s when I was in college a rumor was going around that peperdine was so desperate for Christian students that they were offering free college to
