a petition from TFP Student Action saying Trinity promotes Planned Parenthood on the university website as a "resource." I always check things out so I went and looked. Here's the page. Don't you know, killing babies and selling plugs and drugs to fornicating students (all in violation of Catholic Church teaching) contributes to women's health? Tell that to all the post aborted women who are "silent no more."
This was certainly no surprise to me. I've been pointing out Trinity scandals for years in the Les Femmes newsletter and on my blog. (See here and here and here and here.)
I take no pleasure in Trinity's betrayal. In fact, it grieves my heart. My mom graduated from Trinity in 1939. How she loved the school! It was her greatest hope to have a daughter follow in her footsteps and study under the red-roof. When I told her several years after graduation the scandal I experienced at Trinity she was shocked.
I left Trinity and left the Church. After all, in moral theology I learned how irrelevant the Church was. Joseph Fletcher and Harvey Cox had the answers not Jesus Christ. Yes, I'm ashamed to say, I swallowed the Kool-Aid for a time; I was young, gullible, and thought everyone in a position of authority was telling you the truth. But the betrayal I experienced at Trinity just made me more zealous when I returned to the faith. And when our own kids were scandalized in Catholic high schools, I was on-the-spot fighting with their teachers and the principal.
I hope you'll sign the petition and pass this on with the hashtag #Trinity-Betrays-Women. They need to be exposed. Catholic parents considering Trinity for their daughters especially need to know that the school is no more Catholic than the local Planned Parenthood they support.
