Avila University Pulls Newspapers Over Sexual Articles

February 12, 2006 - Posted at 12:20 p.m. CST

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ A Catholic college in Kansas City pulls

its student newspaper from the rack after it publishes articles

about premarital sex and birth control.

Administrators from Avila University say they removed the

newspapers because they were ``inconsistent with the values of the

institution.''

The school newspaper is called The Talon. Editor Ben Digman says

he knew there might be trouble over a provocative cover of unzipped

pants, but he didn't expect confiscation. Articles inside discussed

one-night stands, sex among students and birth control.

An Avila representative says the student editors are free to

publish future editions of The Talon, but there might not be more

editions for students to read.

Digman says he wants to publish a paper that reflects what

students have to say, not a watered-down publication.
