This morning, one of Students for Life’s brave high school student leaders was on Fox News.
Angelique has been trying to start her Students for Life club since last December and has been getting significant pushback from her school administration at West Career and Technical Academy (WCTA) in Las Vegas.
After submitting all of the necessary paperwork and recruiting more than enough club members, Angelique’s vice principal, Mr. Allen Lee, told her that abortion is too controversial, which is a typical response we hear from administrators.
(By the way, the school has a Gay-Straight Alliance club…but apparently that isn’t controversial!)
But here’s what he told her that is really crazy —
Mr. Lee told Angelique that there are “far more qualified” people to talk about abortion than a 16-year-old high school sophomore!!
Not only is Angelique articulate and razor smart but she is passionately pro-life, having researched abortion all on her own and come to the conclusion that it is truly the greatest human rights violation of our time.
It is this generation that has grown up with the technology to see inside the womb, to know that a baby is growing inside his or her mother and has every right to life as anyone else. They know that abortion ends that life. They have seen their brothers and sisters before they were even born. In addition, it’s this generation who is directly targeted by Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry for business!
Is there a more qualified generation to talk about abortion than this one?
So last week, with the help of SFLA attorneys at the Thomas More Society, we sent a demand letter to the principal at WCTA, Amy Dockter-Rozar, and to the Clark County School District in Las Vegas, reminding them of Angelique’s free speech rights and demanding that they approve her club immediately, before the end of the school year, which is next week.
We need to get Angelique’s club approved ASAP, so she can start helping pregnant students in crisis and educating her peers on abortion right away and can host events right at the beginning of next school year.
