ADMINISTRATORS at a Catholic Women's College in America have expressed regret over sending students to a pro-abortion rally.
St Mary's College in South Bend, Indiana, which bills itself as "the nation's premier Catholic women's college" sent four students and one faculty member to the conference to encourage young people to "save abortion rights".
The decision provoked outrage amongst pro-life students.
One student said "I didn't personally agree with them. When I found out the college paid for it, I couldn't believe it."
College spokeswoman, Melanie Engler, said "Funding is more than exposure. Funding is endorsing and that is something the college thinks shouldn't have happened here."
The grant process is being reviewed.
