The Charleston Gazette in West Virginia quotes campus activist Jordan Bean bemoaning campus-wide rejection when she tried to activate a Planned Parenthood VOX chapter on the campus of Marshall University.

“So many people rejected us. They acted grossed out. They didn’t want to talk about it at all,” she said. Bean was attempting to hand out free condoms to the students, who wanted no part of it.

Falsely claiming that West Virginia has one of the highest teen pregnancy rates in the nation, Bean continued, “I didn’t understand why people were offended by being offered something that helps keep their bodies safe.”

A quick check of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ statistics shows that West Virginia is ranked number 30 out of 50 states plus the District of Columbia in teen pregnancy (with one being the highest), and its teen pregnancy rate is below the national average.

Kudos to the students at Marshall University for rejecting Planned Parenthood’s VOX chapter and its agenda on campus.
