  • The Planned Parenthood Association of Utah is offering to pay a Weber State University student more than $12/hour to create a “Students for Choice” club on campus.
  • Despite Planned Parenthood’s sponsorship, the student will be expected to develop “a plan to access and utilize financial support” from Weber State.

Planned Parenthood is recruiting one student at Weber State University to go undercover to launch a “reproductive justice” club on campus.

The “Students for Choice Club President” will be paid to recruit members for a nondescript “pro-choice” club on campus that will actually be under the control and direction of the Planned Parenthood Association of Utah, according to a recent job posting.

“This position is part of Planned Parenthood’s cycle, of pushing abortions onto students, and lobbying for more money, all while claiming they are out there helping women.”   

Since Weber State does not currently have an active pro-choice club on campus—as school officials confirmed to Campus Reform on Tuesday—the new hiree will work up to 20 hours per week to start one, earning an hourly wage of $12.36.

Once launched, the club will operate as a “reproductive justice” advocacy club, with no direct mention of Planned Parenthood, and will execute various informational events to educate the study body about “reproductive rights and healthcare.”

Instead of using funding from Planned Parenthood, the Students for Choice Club President will be tasked with developing and executing “a plan to access and utilize financial support from [Weber State],” according to job description.
