Elsewhere we have brought to light of Abortions taking place by members of Evangelical, Furndamentalist, Pentecostal and Charismatic Churches right under the noses of the preachers and teachers that so decry the practice. It is one thing for the unsaved to have and to commit the murder of Children through abortion, it is another thing for those that declare themselves to be redeemed and washed in the blood of the Lamb to commit such a thing.
Here now under the nose of the Roman Catholic church is a list of their collages that offer internships into the belly of the abortion industry to help directly or indirect to commit infanticide. How this could have ever happened should be looked into, and all that have their hands tainted in this matter should be immediately fired.
It is a day to clean up the house of God regardless of church or denomination.
June 17, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A national Catholic higher education organization has identified 10 Catholic colleges and universities that are promoting student internships with organizations whose missions or activities are directly opposed to the moral teachings of the Catholic Church, including on fundamental issues such as abortion and marriage.
“This discovery validates the concerns of so many thousands of faithful Catholic parents and students, that public scandals at Catholic colleges are just the tip of the iceberg,” said Patrick J. Reilly, President of The Cardinal Newman Society (CNS). “Under what definition of ‘Catholic education’ do students receive academic credit to work for leading pro-abortion organizations?”
Last week, CNS wrote to the presidents of these colleges and universities to inform them of the problems with their internship programs. None have yet indicated that they will take steps to remedy the problems.
The internship programs — along with concerns
about theological dissent, weakening academic standards and declining campus
culture at many Catholic colleges and universities — may help explain why most
students and recent graduates of Catholic institutions believe that abortion
and homosexual marriage should be legal, despite the Church’s clear teachings
to the contrary. That was one of the disturbing findings of a November
2008 study published
Inappropriate internships were discovered at the following institutions:

A Boston College Law School website also recommends to students opportunities for “pro bono” legal work, including the Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts, which “depends on the work of volunteers and interns to make it possible to achieve its mission of providing low-cost, high-quality medical, educational, counseling, and advocacy services to men and women across the state.” Also listed are the ACLU-Massachusetts and the Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders (GLAD), both of which advocate homosexual “marriage.”
College of St. Benedict & St. John’s University
The Gender and Women’s Studies program for the College of St. Benedict and St. John’s University in Minnesota promotes internship opportunities, including the pro-abortion Feminist Majority Foundation, with responsibilities including “clinic defense” (most likely meaning efforts to oppose protestors at abortion facilities); the Minnesota Women’s Political Caucus, which supports pro-abortion female political candidates; and Rainbow Families, with responsibilities including developing a “resource and referral guide for the LGBT (Lesbian Gay bisexual transgender) prospective parents.”
The DePaul University Women’s and Gender Studies program offers credit for internships, noting that students have interned with abortion provider Planned Parenthood and the Chicago Women’s Health Center, which offers emergency contraceptive services and alternative insemination for “lesbians, bisexual, and queer couples, single women of any sexual orientation, and trans people.”
