Update: Madonna University Cancels Planned Parenthood Speaker After CNS Raises Concern

Update 2/7/2011:  A student from Madonna University forwarded to us an email written by Madonna’s president, alerting the campus minister that the Planned Parenthood speaker was cancelled.  The email is dated February 6, two days after we raised initial concern about the speaker.  President Sister Kujawa’s email reads:
I wanted to inform you as soon as possible that there will be no speaker from Planned Parenthood at Madonna University(including the Orchard Lake or any other MU extension).  You can share this with our Campus Ministry students.  I am sure this will bring relief to their parents as well.  Thank you for your prayers.

Madonna University is a small private school in Livonia, Michigan.  They only have about 4,000 students. I'm greatly relieved that they did cancel the Planned Parenthood Speaker who is "Christine Gannon, MS.ED. is the Professional Development Manager at Planned Parenthood Southeastern Pennsylvania and a CODA.  She received her Bachelor’s degree in Sociology from Lynchburg College and her master’s degree from the University of Pennsylvania in Human Sexuality Education.  She has been doing sexuality-related education and training since 1995.  She presently coordinates and oversees the Sexuality for the Deaf and the Professional Development Department through Planned Parenthood."

The reason this speaker was cancelled was due to the Cardinal Newman Society Blog.  Thank you to the CNS Blog!

But I can't help but wonder, why did Madonna University (a Catholic College) slate a Planned Parenthood Speaker in the first place?
