Catholic Universities Show Solidarity with Boston College

Catholic universities across the country have said that they support Boston College’s decision asking students to cease distributing condoms on campus.

According to a Boston Globe story, officials from The Catholic University of America, College of the Holy Cross, Georgetown University, the University of Dayton, the University of Notre Dame, Providence College, and Stonehill College said that they prohibit students from distributing contraception.

“One of the teachings of our faith is that contraception is morally unacceptable,” said Victor Nakas, a spokesman for The Catholic University of America. “Since condoms are a form of contraception, we do not permit their distribution on campus.”

“If a student or student group was doing something like this on our campus, we would ask them to stop,” said Steve Maurano, spokesman for Providence College. “We would look at it as something that is at issue with our Catholic beliefs.”

Student leaders at Boston College who have been distributing contraceptives at Boston College said that they plan to continue doing so, even it means expulsion.
