The University of Findlay in Findlay, Ohio, has announced that it will no longer allow Planned Parenthood to solicit students on its campus. The Christian college, which is affiliated with the Churches of God, declared the break with the abortion giant after receiving a letter from Students for Life Action.
As part of a wider national initiative, Students for Life Action is sending letters to all Christian-affiliated colleges and universities that have been known to associate with abortion proponents like Planned Parenthood. The letters respectfully point out that Planned Parenthood’s agenda is not consistent with the views of Christianity, and they ask the leaders of the school to affirm their religious stance by disassociating from the abortion giant.
In response to Students for Life Action’s letter, University of Findlay president Katerine Fell wrote, “As a welcoming community grounded in Christian faith, we will remain true to the mission and identity that have guided us for 138 years. We do not require everyone who works, studies, or visits our campus to be Christian or to agree with Christian doctrines. We do require that they treat matters of faith with respect. We find that students thrive in their Christian walk in this environment. As for Planned Parenthood, UF policy will not allow it on campus to solicit students.”
Students for Life Action National Field Director Katie Lodjic touched on the importance of this work in a news brief, saying, “By having this policy in place, the University of Findlay is protecting students from Planned Parenthood, and showing them that the abortion industry has no place on a Christian campus. By not allowing Planned Parenthood back on campus, UF is cutting off Planned Parenthood’s access to their target audience and saving lives.”
This isn’t the first time that the pro-life group has met with success. In addition to the University of Findlay, other Christian colleges around the nation have disassociated with Planned Parenthood, including Lubbock Christian University, Clarks Summit University, Pepperdine University, Edgewood College, Seattle University, and the College of Saint Scholastica.
