Holy Cross College sends students to Planned Parenthood

Okay. If a student or anybody suspects contacting a sexually transmitted disease, it is imperative that he or she get tested. And treated, if possible. Nobody's arguing that.

But of all places for Holy Cross College to send its students, why Planned Parenthood?

It's not like there aren't other alternatives in the area. Even if there were not—even if the student had to travel a few miles—does this excuse this supposedly "Catholic" college from sending students to a place such as this?

No, it does not.

In case you don't get it, the number to contact for "Sexually Transmitted Infection Testing"—508-854-3300—is none other than "Planned Parenthood of Massachusetts, your trusted reproductive health care center."
