A Catholic university provided transportation for their students to attend the Women’s March, an event with a decidedly pro-abortion stance.
St. Catherine University sent two buses of students to a version of the Women’s March in Minnesota, reports Campus Reform.
“Marching for ‘peace without prejudice’ and for inclusion, equality and justice, the Center for Women and the Mission Chair in Women’s Education invite students, staff, faculty, alumnae, Sisters and friends to participate in this historic event,” the event description reads.
The event description explained that students who attended were trying to end violence against women, provide safety for immigrants and support female access to free healthcare.
“Together, we will send a message to our leaders and the world that we stand for human dignity, equal rights, and freedom from discrimination,” two attendants of the march said. “Ours is a peaceful, nonpartisan march.”
The Women’s March, which drew approximately 500,000 to its D.C. event, had participants marching for issues like abortion, gay rights, immigration and the environment. A pro-life feminist group, the New Wave Feminists, was uninvited for their anti-abortion stance.
St. Catherine University was not the only college to send students over to the Women’s March. Emerson College and Depauw University got buses to take students to the main Women’s March in Washington, D.C.
Students at Depauw had to pay $25 to confirm a seat on the bus. The college subsidized many of the costs for the trip, along with supplying students with snacks and water.
