A Madison, Wisconsin, Catholic college has cut Planned Parenthood from a list of student resources after a petition seeking the abortion provider’s removal garnered over 15,000 signatures.
TFP Student Action of Edgewood College announced on November 19 it had verified “the same webpage that once directed students to Planned Parenthood is now unavailable.”
The TFP Student Action petition was addressed to Sr. Mary Ellen Gevelinger, O.P., Ed.D., the interim president of Edgewood College, a school run by the Dominican Sisters of Sinsinawa.
TFP Student Action Director John Ritchie told the College Fix he was happy the group had achieved its goal.
In October, Father Stephen Sundborg, S.J., president of the Jesuit-run Seattle University, also removed Planned Parenthood from its list of student healthcare resources.
