Catholic College Offers Morning-After Pill

I'm so angry at my school right now that I don't even know what to do. I normally don't read the school news paper because its not worth it (we always call it 'Pravda' just so you get an idea of why I think its worthless). But today I was at work and someone gave me a copy of the paper to read, so I decided to scan the headlines to see if there was anything interesting in there before I toss it out. Sure enough there was.

There is a whole big article in there about how the wellness center offers birth control and birth control counseling. Even more it says you can get the morning-after pill for $35 and they state that it is not an abortive pill.

What the heck. Where am I? Is this bizzaro world? Why is a Catholic institution offering birth control, and why are they offering the morning-after pill and telling everyone it is not an abortive pill. I'm just so angry I'm using all of my strength to a) not cry and b) not use foul language.

I don't even know what to do. Is it worth trying to do something through the school - although its clear they think its all ok (as I remember a couple years ago they got in trouble for offering condoms and they had to stop). Or do you call the archdiocese or what. It makes me sick to think they can call this place Catholic.

I think you first should email someone in charge (paper trail!), then forward everything to your archdiocese. This is horrible!

I agree with Chris. Also, next time the ask for money from you an alumnus, tell them why you won't contribute any money.
It's an outrage!

About Me

My photo
Catholic and politically conservative, I graduated with a BA in History (concentration in American) and Political Science. I'm between two parishes; one in Wisconsin that is fairly traditional, and one in Illinois that is fairly liberal. I teach CCD. I work in the food service industry, which basically means I'm working in fast food until I find a better job. I'd like to work for the church somehow. Right now I'm working on getting my teaching certification, although I'm unsure thats the correct path for me. This blog is as random as I am. I hope you enjoy.
