Catholic College Professor Is Planned Parenthood Board Member
A psychology professor at the College of Saint Rose in New York whose “teaching interests” include “Psychology of Women and Gender” as well as “Intimacy, Relationships, and Sexuality” is also an active board member of Planned Parenthood.
Ellen Cole, who acted as a board member of Planned Parenthood in Alaska from 2003-2007, was hired by the College of Saint Rose in Albany as a full-time visiting professor in 2010. She wrote on the St. Rose website that the college’s commitment to “passion, knowledge, and purpose” enticed her.
Last August, the Upper Hudson Planned Parenthood announced that Cole had joined them as a board member. The website of the organization boasts that it performs “safe and effective” abortions for anywhere from $300–$950 in the first trimester.
The administration did not respond to requests for comment, but it hardly seems plausible that the college didn’t know of Cole’s long-standing affiliation with the largest provider of abortions in the country, as it is listed right on her CV, which is available on the college’s own website.
A quick visit to the college president’s website reveals pictures flashing across the top of the screen of President R. Mark Sullivan grinning and chatting with pro-abortion rights politicians such as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg.
