Sperm donation fliers create controversy
Fliers advertising sperm donation for 123Donate.coms Roseville, Minn. donation office have been catching student and administrators eyes around the St. Thomas campus in recent weeks.

...

The Rev. John Malone, vice president for Mission, said the controversy over these fliers could spark a central system for approving advertisements in any St. Thomas building, and he intends to suggest one.

I think that we, as a Catholic institution, have to live up to what the basic teachings are, and the teachings of the Catholic church are that artificial insemination is beneath the level of appropriate means of procreation, Malone said.

I must admit, I did not know the Catholic church was dictating a policy for this aspect of personal family planning as well.

I get the impression they dictate everything down to appropriate positions.
