The University of Houston's Graduate College of Social Work is under fire for offering a course that promotes abortion.
Organizers claim the one-day course offered last month was meant to help end the stigma of abortion, but Matt Lamb, director of communications for Students for Life of America, finds it ironic that the college of social work offered the session.
"Social workers are supposed to be helping people -- helping people in poverty, helping people get back on the right track," Lamb notes. "They're promoting something that leads to more mental health problems [and] doesn't help people get out of poverty."
The pro-lifer explains that the course was taught by two Planned Parenthood employees, one of whom has been identified as an individual in a 2015 undercover sting video discussing the selling of aborted babies' body parts.
"It's troubling that they're giving taxpayer dollars or using taxpayer-funded facilities to give a platform to someone that did what she did," Lamb contends.
He believes this was more of a marketing class for Planned Parenthood than it was a course for future social workers.
