by Karen Faulkner, Worthy News Correspondent
(Worthy News) – A new study has shown that 103 US Christian colleges and universities in the United States have had connections to Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion provider, the Christian Post (CP) reports. The study was conducted by the Institute for Pro-Life Advancement (IPLA), which asserts that a connection with Planned Parenthood is an “endorsement of abortion violence.”
The IPLA study analyzed all 784 American colleges and universities that are affiliated with a Christian church in the US, to see what, if any, relationship they had with Planned Parenthood, CP reports. The study graded the schools on a scale from A to F based on the type of relationship they had with Planned Parenthood. Schools with no “infractions” received an A, while schools with four or more infractions received an F.
According to the study, 56% of all infractions consisted of listing Planned Parenthood as a resource for students, CP reports. In 31% of cases, the infractions consisted of offering Planned Parenthood as an organization with which to do internships and obtain course credits.
In 6% of cases, schools had worked with Planned Parenthood on at least one event in the preceding year; in 4% of cases, Planned Parenthood was suggested as an organization with which to have a career. Planned Parenthood was cited as a volunteer opportunity in 2% of cases. In 1% of cases, Planned Parenthood events were advertised on the school website.
It was found that 22% of the 103 schools received an F grade, 20% received a D grade, 19% received a C grade and 39% received a B grade, CP reports.
