Margaret SangerAfter reports earlier this year that Texas Christian University has close ties with Planned Parenthood,  there's news of another university in a similar situation.

I am the pro-life generationKatie Lodjic of Students for Life of America reports that Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington, is offering accredited internships with Planned Parenthood.

Whitworth, a private college founded in 1890, is affiliated with the Presbyterian denomination.

It was ranked third this year by U.S. News and World Report among regional universities in the West. 

Lodjic says Whitworth also sponsored a community fetal research event related to Planned Parenthood. 

"During that event," she reports, "they highlighted the upside of abortion as donating baby body parts."

Whitworth's published mission is to equip their graduates to honor God and Christ and to serve humanity.

By partnering with Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry," says the pro-life activist, "they are not equipping their graduates to be Christians and follow Christ."

Whitworth Students for Life vice president James Silberman demanded his school cut ties with Planned Parenthood in a recent commentary in the campus newspaper.
