Colleges and universities are grounds for controversy on every single day. They are supposed to be places of debate where each side gets to demonstrate but their own point of view. However, as many of us know personally, this is rarely the case. In fact, it’s too often that pro-lifers get shut down by pro-abortion administrators or activists on campus, just for the mere fact that they espouse the pro-life position.
One such story is happening right now in Boise, Idaho as Boise State University. The student pro-life group there, Abolitionists4Life, held a “What Has Roe Done For Us?” project demonstration and was forced to put up signs by the university administration that there were graphics used that may offend people. The pro-abortion groups got to do their own demonstrations and events on different days and never were forced to put up signs saying that their material was possibly offensive.
Our friends at Alliance Defending Freedom filed a lawsuit against the university, saying that the free speech rights of the pro-life students were violated. Here is a segment from the local news station about the case: www.ktvb.com/news/Campus-anti-abortion-group-suing-BSU-over-free-speech-265317701.html
Hopefully this can get resolved soon and in the favor of Abolitionists4Life. Has something similar happened to your student pro-life group on campus? If so, let us know and email us at [email protected].
