California IN BRIEF : SANTA CLARA : Rally at Jesuit School Supports Abortions

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Two hundred students at Santa Clara University have made history at the 138-year-old Jesuit school with a rally supporting legal abortion. The demonstration was the first of its kind at the university, where students cannot receive birth control at the student health center. Other Catholic universities have banned similar rallies. The university's president, the Rev. Paul Locatelli, wrote in a letter to the university newspaper that school should support the expression of different viewpoints.
