Oklahoma City University, a school affiliated with the United Methodist Church in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, lists Planned Parenthood as a resource for students in two places on their website. Planned Parenthood is listed on their Health and Wellness Links page and their list of Local Hospitals and Physicians.
Katie Lodjic, the National Field Director for Students for Life Action, sent Oklahoma City University a letter asking them to remove Planned Parenthood from their lists of resources.
Leslie Berger, the president of the university, responded:
“Planned Parenthood is listed on the OCU clinic website as a health resource. The university will continue to include this resource.”
Christian schools like Oklahoma City University should be places where students are educated to respect the dignity of all human beings. By promoting Planned Parenthood, they are allowing the students in their care to be educated by the nation’s largest abortion vendor that actively tells students that killing an innocent baby is fine. This is going against the very principles that Oklahoma City University should stand for as a Christian university.
Pro-life activists are encouraged to contact the president of the university, urging the university to remove Planned Parenthood from their website, and to come out in support of the dignity of all human life. You can take action using this Digital Action Center.
