Blatant pro-Planned Parenthood bias in Catholic college’s research guides

Students at a Catholic college in Minnesota who are conducting research on contraception and sex education are steered to the web sites of Planned Parenthood and other blatantly biased sites, according to the college’s web site.

Students at St. Catherine’s College who are researching insurance coverage of contraception are directed to the web sites of the Center for Reproductive Rights, Cover My Pills, the National Organization for Women, and Planned Parenthood. They are not directed to any pro-life or Catholic sites that discuss the abortifacient nature of many contraceptives or that offer other principled objections to insurance coverage.

Likewise, students at St. Catherine’s College who are researching sex education in the schools are not directed to any Catholic, pro-life, or pro-family resources on the topic, but are instead directed to the web sites of Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS), and other sites that favor comprehensive sex education.

Founded in 1905 by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, the College of St. Catherine has 5,201 students, 3,727 of them undergraduates.

    I'm not surprised with St. Kate's- it's also very commonly known as the Lesbian school. I think most people who go to these so called, "Catholic" colleges are pretty aware of their anti Catholic stances. St. Johns, and St. Benedict's Catholic Colleges in Minnesota are equally as anti-Papal in just about every issue. This is why I had to leave the state just to find an authentically Catholic school- F.U.S!
