Collegians See The Real Planned Parenthood

At Eagle Forum Collegians Summit, college students from all over the country were able to hear from some of the biggest names in grassroots conservatism. Members of Congress such as Mark Meadows, Louie Gohmert, Jim Bridenstine, Jeff Sessions, and Diane Black gave a great speech and took questions from the students. One issue that many speakers touched on was the scandal involving a series of undercover videos released by the pro-life group known as the Center For Medical Progress. These videos show conversations where top Planned Parenthood officials to talk about selling the body parts of aborted babies. Obviously, this is a current issue that conservative college students need to be aware of in order to effectively share their pro-life views with fellow students.

Representative Diane Black of Tennessee spoke on her past pro-life efforts on the state level and her current bill to defund Planned Parenthood while an investigation is conducted on the allegations that the organization now faces. She spoke about why she authored the bill and explained that “This is not the way that we should be behaving as human beings.” This kind of firsthand knowledge from the legislators on the front line is what college students can expect from a program like the Eagle Forum Collegians Summit.

Senator Rand Paul, a Republican presidential candidate in the 2016 election, said that “The time is now for the government to say ‘You know what, taxpayers shouldn’t be paying for Planned Parenthood.’” Author Paul Kengor added a historical perspective to the discussion by talking about how Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, visited the USSR to learn about how the Communists used abortion for their evil agenda. College students need to learn about these things, and they certainly are not hearing about them from their professors. That is why Eagle Forum Collegians Summit is a valuable tool to encourage and train young conservatives.
