Pro-lifers angry over Georgetown Law students’ pro-choice internships
Jill Stanek, a prominent pro-life activist and blogger, recently learned about Georgetown’s Women’s Law and Public Policy Fellowship Program, and she’s not pleased. The program’s summer newsletter highlighted the internship experiences members have had, including a couple students who worked at the Planned Parenthood Federation of America and Catholics for Choice.
Conservative Catholics usually react so enthusiastically whenever the phrases “Georgetown Law student” and “Planned Parenthood internship” are put together, so Stanek’s response should come as no surprise:
I don’t understand how open flouting of Catholic teaching is tolerated at an institution centered on Catholic teaching. More than that, this group is working to undermine Catholic teaching. It seems to me the Church has lost total control of the American Catholic educational system.
