Catholic St. Louis University holds Feminism Week, Complete with Pro-Choice Activists

As The College Fix reported:

“A pro-choice, pro-LGBT activist whose website glorifies abortion doctors as “heroes” and offers tutorials on transsexual sex is set to headline a feminism week observance at Saint Louis University, a controversial decision organizers are defending as in line with the college’s Catholic identity.

But the controversial keynote speaker for the “Free To Be” feminism week, which launches Monday, is also under fire because the weeklong observance comes after a group of students complained about a Christian sexual purity conference held at the university in January.

At issue is the pending appearance of Sandra Kim, founder of the online magazine Everyday Feminism. Kim’s speech comes two months after students issued a list of demands to the university’s administration after taking offense at the “Taboo” conference hosted on campus that advocated for traditional marriage.

The Catholic university appeased those demands, promising funding for “a program promoting diversity and inclusion” to offset the conservative conference.”
