the Cardinal Newman Society as having "long criticized Catholic colleges for promoting practices that it believes are inconsistent with Catholic doctrine," the Chronicle of Higher Education says that, during last month's debates about federal support for Planned Parenthood, the Newman Society released a report, in which Catholic colleges and universities were criticized for mentioning Planned Parenthood. A detailed list can be found here. 24 colleges have since removed mention of Planned Parenthood, but some -- including some "more-prominent institutions on the list," such as Boston College -- said that they had not deleted such mention. Said Jack Dunn, a spokesman at Boston College:
The Cardinal Newman Society has no academic standing and has been admonished by Catholic bishops for using scare tactics that are designed to induce elderly donors into supporting their misguided efforts. As a Jesuit, Catholic university, Boston College has never been influenced by them.
Officials at Gonzaga University, the University of San Diego, the University of San Francisco and Dominican University of California all countered the Newman Society's report and said that references to Planned Parenthood remained on their webpages.
