Well over 15,000 students and parents have politely requested that Alverno College, a Catholic college sponsored by the School Sisters of St. Francis, delete several web site links that channel students to abortion advocacy groups. However, despite the large number of complaints the links remain up and running.

Call Alverno College to protest:
Pro-abortion groups now listed under “resources” include:
- Center for Reproductive Health
- National Organization for Women (NOW)
- EMILY’s List, and many more
The complete list of objectionable web sites can be accessed here.
Radical Women is another group currently featured. This organization bills itself as “a trailblazing socialist feminist organization,” and its web site not only promotes communist ideology and homosexual vice, but also the brutal abortion procedure known as partial birth abortion.
After TFP Student Action started its peaceful protest in June, Alverno College merely removed a few links and posted a disclaimer stating: “The views expressed in these weblinks do not necessarily reflect the views of the Alverno College Research Center for Women and Girls.”
To TFP Student Action members and protesters this disclaimer is window dressing.
The Protest Continues
TFP Student Action will continue and intensify its protest until all the pro-abortion links are gone. The average webmaster could remove these links with ease in five minutes. Rosemont College and the University of Detroit Mercy (both Catholic) recently took down links to pro-abortion groups on their web sites. Yet Alverno College has not done so, thus giving scandal to students who are faithful to Catholic teaching on abortion.
Spread the word: Everyone is asked to respectfully speak out against this scandal, to be the voice of the unborn that clamor for justice, and oppose the sin of abortion. Ask Alverno College to delete every pro-abortion group on its web site today.
To protest, call:
414-382-6064To make it easy, I suggest you say something like this:
"Hello, my name is ___________. Thank you for taking my call. I understand that the Alverno College Research Center for Women and Girls has web site links to several abortion advocacy groups, such as the National Organization for Women and others.
"I'm simply shocked that a Catholic college would channel students to groups that promote abortion. These links only undermine Catholic teaching and lead students away from the truth.
"So, I'm calling in peaceful protest to ask you to remove every link that promotes abortion."
