Whitworth University -- Stand with Planned Parenthood
This petition had 735 supporters
During Fall Semester of 2016, we recognized the lack of an organizational structure at Whitworth for progressive students to voice concerns and opinions regarding sexual and reproductive health. We decided to partner with Planned Parenthood to make this happen on our campus through their college activist group known as Generation Action (www.plannedparenthoodgenaction.org) Our intention is to educate the student body with factual information about the organization as well as to combat the stigma that surrounds conversations about sex and contraception at Whitworth. Since submitting our club charter paperwork back in December, we have encountered resistance from the administration, while the pro-life organization was validated and received their club charter.
Members of Whitworth's administration have requested that we de-affiliate with Planned Parenthood, in order to receive club-status. However, we feel that this is an unjust demand that attempts to force us to compromise our founding principles and guiding ideologies.
Please join us in making progressive voices heard on Whitworth's campus, and stand with Planned Parenthood!
