Last week, the bookstore at Catholic University of America (CUA) canceled a scheduled appearance by D.C. Congressional Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton. Conservative student groups had objected to her record of supporting abortion rights, according to a report in the student newspaper the Tower. “Pro-life students at Catholic University heard something contrary to their convictions and spoke out about it,” explains Erika Cunis, president of CUA Students for Life, in an e-mail to the Washington City Paper. A survey of upcoming campus events reveals that Norton is not the only person or other entity at risk of being banned. —Josh Levin
