Jesuit Georgetown Encouraging Contributions to Planned Parenthood

Jesuit Georgetown Encouraging Contributions to Planned Parenthood

TFP Student Action – 6/1/18

Jesuit Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. is encouraging students to support mega abortion provider Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion groups with time and money.

Under “Organizations You can Support,” Georgetown’s Law Library web site lists:

– Planned Parenthood
– NARAL Pro-Choice America
– The Center for Reproductive Rights
– The National Organization for Women (NOW)
– EMILY’s List
– The Southern Poverty Law Center
– Lambda Legal

Although these groups trample Church teaching by promoting abortion and the destruction of God’s marriage, Georgetown tells web visitors to support them with time and money.

Ironically, the Georgetown Law Library web page dedicated to the history of “civil rights” includes a pitch to support pro-abortion groups that deny the first and most basic right — namely, the right to life.

What might be even worse, Georgetown hired the Senior Associate General Counsel and Director of Advocacy and Political Law of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Inc., Prof. Zoe Segal-Reichlin, to teach law at its Catholic campus.

Don’t you think Georgetown should know better? Especially being the oldest Catholic university in America?

  1. [Not the only Jesuit university]
    Fordham University Features Planned Parenthood as “Internship and Job Opportunity”
    TFP Student Action - Dec 1, 2017
    Jesuit Fordham University in New York City features mega abortion provider Planned Parenthood under “internships and job opportunities” for students. The online entry, however, is raising deep concern among young Catholics who believe in the God-given right to life, which naturally extends to the unborn.
    TFP Student Action has launched a petition calling for the removal of Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion advocacy groups listed by the university’s Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies department. [Link]
    “How can a Catholic university favor Planned Parenthood?” said TFP Student Action director John Ritchie. “In good conscience, we can’t stay silent and allow the Culture of Death to poison more young minds. No way. Not on a Catholic campus.”
    “Instead of featuring groups that attack Church teaching, students should be given the names of honorable pro-life organizations that faithfully defend the unborn,” continued Ritchie. “And there are so many to pick from.”
    Planned Parenthood is not the only pro-abortion group listed by Fordham University. Others include the National Organization for Women (NOW-NYC), Amnesty International, and GLAAD, a pro-homosexual advocacy group.
    TFP Student Action invites pro-lifers to join its peaceful protest and call for the removal of all pro-abortion groups currently listed online by Fordham.
    “You don’t need to be a college student to participate,” said Ritchie. “With God’s help, the truth will prevail.”

  2. The law school is perhaps the least Catholic part of Georgetown. There are probably more Protestants, atheists, masonic initiates, anti-Catholic liberals, non-Christians, and secular humanists on the law faculty than believing or practicing Catholics.

    Of the university in general, before Father Schall retired there were arguably around three members of the Society of Jesus on the faculty that one could accurately describe as believing and practicing Catholic priests in full communion with the Church in an orthodox sense. One other has since died. That would leave one. If there is now more than one orthodox Catholic Jesuit priest on the full-time faculty it would be interesting to hear the explanation of that with specifics on their titles and leadership positions (along with an explanation on why they have not denounced this latest abomination publicly). Cat got your tongue?

  3. TFP is still a mind-control cult and, if reports from escapees are to be believed, its young men frequently skip Sunday Mass are anticlerical and idolatrous on a particularly bizarre level,
    Like the Opie Dopies, it seems to attract psychologically needy individuals.
    But it does broadcast a few important “Catholic messages”, so there’s that.

  4. The point at which the majority of its student body and faculty became non-Catholic Georgetown ceased being a Catholic institution of higher learning in any significant way (sometime in the 1970s or ’80s). By default, that leaves Mount St. Mary’s as the “oldest” Catholic college in the U.S. still in existence (despite the absurd efforts of its former president to end that as well).

    The Society of Jesus actually no longer governs or directs Georgetown University. Given the state of vocations to the priesthood in the Jesuit order that situation is unlikely to change.

    Father Robert Drinan, S.J. had been at Georgetown before he passed on but his political support for abortion automatically imposed a latae sententiae excommunication on himself which, in addition to the obvious, is why he could not be counted as a “Catholic” faculty member. That applies to any fake Jesuits or fake priests at similar colleges and universities who push and enable anti-life and anti-Catholic agendas (i.e., at Fordham, Holy Cross, Boston College, et al.). Likewise at Notre Dame where the fake priest in the president’s office cannot be counted as “Catholic” for similar reasons, despite the fake clerical garb.
