A Catholic university should honor and defend the principles of Catholic Social Teaching, at the heart of which is the principle of human dignity. For the University to not only permit, but host and financially support a fundraiser for the country’s largest provider of abortion is shameful…If this were a fundraiser for the KKK, a group seeking to marginalize the homeless, or an anti-immigration group, there is no way it would be tolerated. It is deeply disturbing that the University refuses to extend the same defense of human dignity to the unborn.

Planned Parenthood is one of the largest killers of unborn babies in the world. According to its own statistical analysis, the organization performed over 350,000 abortions in the two years of 2019 and 2020.
