“going against its Catholic mission”
Marquette is a Catholic school so it’s a little odd that they would have ties with a pro-abortion group in the first place.

Petition urges Marquette to cut ties with pro-abortion club
More than 15,000 people have joined a pro-life student organization that is urging Marquette University to sever ties with Marquette Empowerment, a pro-abortion student group.
Tradition, Family, Property (TFP) Student Action, an organization that promotes traditional values, launched an online petition in late June outlining four “scandals” related to Marquette Empowerment and arguing that “no Catholic campus should ever recognize or fund a pro-abortion club.”
According to the petition, the first scandal consists of the fact that Marquette is “going against its Catholic mission” by recognizing a pro-abortion club that is eligible to “receive university funding.”
“Marquette Empowerment pushes the abortion agenda,” the petition states under the second “scandal,” referencing a January tweet in which the activist group shared an illustration that read “it’s okay to have an abortion.”
“Abortion is healthcare,” Marquette Empowerment tweeted at the time. “It is normal and okay to have an abortion. You can talk about it publicly if you want to. We support you. We stand with you.”
“Marquette Empowerment hosted an event on campus titled ‘Learn about abortion access in Wisconsin’ on April 16,” the petition continues in its next charge. “The guest speaker was Lucy Marshall who works for Women’s Medical Fund, which boasts of having paid 2,504 mothers to ‘follow through on their decision to have an abortion.’”
