Marquette's Tribune: Wrong Again, Updated

The Trib's editors don't get it.

The official newspaper of Marquette University , The Marquette Tribune, has again refused to run pro-life advertising. Previously, in March of this year, The Marquette Tribune rejected Pro-Life Wisconsin’s educational ads about emergency contraception, on the basis that the words “chemical abortion” were too strong for the publication.

...“Human Life Alliance’s pro-life advertising supplement, Trapped… was refused by The Marquette Tribune for the following objections: Accurate description of abortion methods, photo depicting an in utero corrective procedure, and an explanation of the birth control/abortion connection,” said Jillian Roemer, distribution coordinator for Human Life Alliance.

The inserts were accepted by Marquette ’s independent student newspaper, The Warrior.

“One of our nine Core Values at The Warrior is to cherish Marquette 's Catholic identity, and we are pleased to have this opportunity to do so,” said Katie Wycklendt, business manager at The Warrior.

So the "alternative press" at Marquette is the one that runs the Pro-Life ads.

The irony is astounding.

UPDATE: The Warrior has much more.

I have found the document called Trapped that is being commented about,

The section Biology 101: Child Development really shows how we grow in the womb, quite amazing indeed and shares a month by month progres with descriptions and powerful color photos. For me it is compelling information to think about.
