Teen Magazines Pulled from Library

HAUPPAUGE, NY - Teen Magazines Seventeen, Teen and YM were pulled from a middle school library in Hauppauge, NY because they contain sexually-explicit material. The district superintendent, noting that the magazines are "not age appropriate" for middle school students, ordered them removed after parents and concerned citizens filed a formal complaint.

The tipoff came from Msgr. E. Raymond Walden of the St. Thomas More Roman Catholic Church in Hauppauge, who described the magazines' content to his parishioners. Msgr. Walden said the magazines' main problem is the advice columns, which discuss having sex, using at-home pregnancy tests, taking birth-control pills, and using condoms.
