CatholicCulture.org, a Catholic news and commentary site, is in the midst of a series on Catholic schools that point their students toward careers with Planned Parenthood. And in their digging, they turned up something about an adjunct instructor at Georgetown’s School of Nursing and Health Studies that they found interesting—before she worked at Georgetown, Roberta Geidner-Antoniotti worked for Planned Parenthood.
According to her curriculum vitae (download it here), Geidner-Antoniotti was President and CEO of the Mahoning Valley Planned Parenthood from 1990 to 1997, where she increased increased donor loyalty and giving and patient numbers. She held the same job from 1998 to 2000 with Planned Parenthood’s Maryland branch and was an acting project manager with Planned Parenthood Federation of America in the interim.
More recently, she was the CFO of the Whitman-Walker Clinic and has won a host of public awards. At Georgetown, Geidner-Antoniotti is involved with strategic planning and execution.
Geidner-Antoniotti is not trained as a medical doctor (she has a master degree in applied sociology) and does not hold a seem to hold a teaching position at Georgetown, but that didn’t seem to matter to Dr. Jeff Mirus, CatholicCulture.org’s president, who wrote an excoriating editorial to accompany the news piece.
“Any association of this type on the part of a Catholic university is, of course, reprehensible, but it adds insult to injury that the woman in question, Roberta Lynn Geidner-Antoniotti, teaches in the nursing program,” he wrote. “Apparently Georgetown is in the forefront of the contemporary redefinition of health care to include murder.”
