NEWTON, Mass. —

Boston College is threatening disciplinary action against a group of students who distribute condoms out of their dorm rooms.

University officials sent a letter on March 15 demanding an end to student-run Safe Sites, a network of dorm rooms and other locations where free contraceptives and safe-sex information are available. The university says the distribution of condoms is a violation of the school's Roman Catholic values.

Lizzie Jekanowski, chairwoman of BC Students for Sexual Health, tells The Boston Globe ( http://b.globe.com/10ds28a) the administration has known about the condom distribution for two years yet has never before threatened action.

An attorney at the American Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts says Boston College may be violating student rights, and the group is prepared to bring legal action.
