UPDATE, 11/24, 12:10p: Add another college to the censorship list, this time a Catholic one. Per DFW Catholic:

“We’re saddened to learn Gonzaga University, a Catholic school, has refused to accept We Know Better Now, our pro-life advertising supplement for ‘The Gonzaga Bulletin,'” said Joe Langfeld, Deputy Director for Human Life Alliance….
When asked to run the advertising supplement, officials from The Gonzaga Bulletin rejected the inserts stating, “There are articles in the insertion that cast a negative light on various organizations or individuals. While these statements may be true, we simply cannot insert them in our paper per our advertising policies.”…

PA’s Allegheny College has decided it knows better than to allow a 12-page pro-life insert by Human Life Alliance called We Know Better Now into its student newspaper….

This supposed body of higher learning gave no notice it was censoring the insert. Allegheny accepted HLA’s fee, and HLA shipped 1,500 copies. Only when someone noticed the insert was missing in the November 13 issue of The Campus (with a website strangely down, although here’s an older edition announcing the availability of Plan B over the counter) did Allegheny officials fess up, according to an HLA press release:

“We contacted the newspaper… and were told our advertisement was too controversial – even after they had accepted the advertising fee,” [HLA executive director Jo] Tolck said.

So much for “choice.” Here’s how HLA describes its brochure:

We Know Better Now is a compelling pro-life resource designed to educate people about abortion. With 84% of college professors approving of abortion, students are under more pressure than ever to conform to the pro-abortion agenda. We Know Better Now is designed to encourage the increasing number of pro-life students entering college and provide them with relevant resources to strengthen their convictions. The solid pro-life content in We Know Better Now challenges students to re-think their ideas about abortion, premarital sex, and the humanity of the unborn child.

You can view the other “controversial” 11 pages of We Know Better Now below and also here. The brochure is simply excellent!
Meanwhile, in other news the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported November 19 that PA college enrollment is down. Why? Fewer students.
