Student group holds event at Union University to talk Planned Parenthood funding

JACKSON, Tenn. — Students at Union University hosted a pro-life event on campus Wednesday inviting students to discuss the need for Planned Parenthood.

Union students partnered with Students for Life of America to set up a display outside the cafeteria on campus. The goal was to open up the discussion about cutting government funds for Planned Parenthood.

“What we are hoping to do is just remind people about the issue, get them a little bit more informed about it and hopefully give them an opportunity to do something,” pro-life student group president Andrew Edmiston said. “We are going to have computers set up so people, if they feel so inclined, can send an email to their representatives asking them to defund Planned Parenthood.”

The event lasted until 2 p.m. The display is part of a 60-campus spring tour across the nation.
