From a recent Ohio Right to Life Newsletter
COLUMBUS, Ohio--Today, Ohio State University announced in their daily Today OnCampus email that they will be hosting "Sex Week" beginning on February 11. Two of the listed events are put on by Planned Parenthood, one with the title "Fighting Abortion Stigma with Planned Parenthood."
“Ohio State, as a publicly-funded university, should not be promoting Planned Parenthood's abortion agenda,” said Jamieson Gordon, spokeswoman for Ohio Right to Life. “Partnering with Planned Parenthood, an organization that makes millions of dollars by ending the lives of unborn babies, is a disgusting use of tax-payer money. Planned Parenthood's core mission is abortion-on-demand and that is far outside the mainstream of most Ohioans' deeply held convictions.”
Planned Parenthood is also featured on an event called "Contraception Jeopardy."
"Ohio Right to Life calls on the Ohio General Assembly to consider this tacit support of Planned Parenthood by OSU as they begin to look at the Ohio budget," said Mike Gonidakis, president of Ohio Right to Life. "Ohio State University will likely ask for millions more of our tax dollars in this year's budget. Their support of Planned Parenthood should be enough to give Ohio's pro-life legislators pause."
Ohio Right to Life urges pro-life Ohioans to contact their legislators to voice their opposition of how their tax-dollars are being used to promote Planned Parenthood.
Founded in 1967, Ohio Right to Life, with more than 45 chapters and local affiliates, is Ohio's oldest and largest grassroots pro-life organization. Recognized as the flagship of the pro-life movement in Ohio, ORTL works through legislation and education to promote and defend innocent human life from conception to natural death.
Regarding Girl Scouts:
Did you know?.....
Those wonderful young girls with bright smiles and badge-laden sashes, showing evidence of their hard work and enthusiasm, what could be the problem with that? If you think using the innocence of young girls to fund and promote abortion and being connected to Planned Parenthood through the sale of cookies is exploitation, then plenty is wrong with it. Consider these facts • The Girl Scouts curriculum for girls, used by every local Girl Scout council, recommends pro-abortion role models and organizations such as Betty Friedan, Gloria Steinem, Hillary Clinton, Amnesty International, Population Council, and The National Organization For Women. • Local Girl Scout councils and GSUSA connect girls to resources promoting abortion rights and Scout social media accounts. • Girl Scouts USA (GSUSA) collects a royalty based on the GS trademark on every box of cookies. There are approximately 200 million boxes of cookies sold annually, equaling millions of dollars of funding for GSUSA every year. • GSUSA maintains membership in abortion advocacy groups: The Coalition for Adolescent Girls and Re:Gender. • Other organizations working alongside GSUSA include abortion providers, International Planned Parenthood Federation and Marie Stopes International, and numerous organizations that push for unrestricted abortion rights, such as the Feminist Majority Foundation and the National Women’s Law Center.
