Since last year, our team has been working with brave high school pro-life students, Brigid and Katie in Fargo, North Dakota.These two girls have courageously volunteered to start a much needed Students for Life group at two public high schools in Fargo – Fargo North High School and Davies High School.
Despite the fact that their schools have allowed a “Gay-Straight Alliance” on campuses, both of their public high schools have denied Brigid and Katie their constitutional guaranteed right to freedom of speech and assembly saying that starting a pro-life group will be “too controversial!”
In fact, their administrators have put these students through extensive questioning, including inappropriate questions about their religious affiliations, and have gone to the entire Fargo School Board to stop pro-life student groups from being started in the entire city!!
After months of trying to work with the schools to uphold our students’ constitutional rights, we are going public with our story and threatening to take legal action against the Fargo School District if they don’t relent.
However, these two courageous students – Brigid and Katie – are coming under intense scrutiny in their classes and in their school hallways with taking this case public.
So I need your help today.
Brigid and Katie are only sophomores yet they are standing up for what’s right, even in the face of criticism, simply because they know how important it is to have a Students for Life group at their schools.
They know starting a pro-life group will mean that they can save lives, help other young girls in crisis, and educate their peers about abortion and to steer clear of the abortion Goliath, Planned Parenthood.
Right now, our team at Students for Life has been helping Brigid and Katie prepare for media interviews, we have a staff member in Fargo with the girls to help them through this time, and our attorneys at the Thomas More Legal Society are working hard on our legal options from here.
However, these brave girls need to know that they aren’t alone. They need to know that you and I are standing with them in this battle – standing up for the constitutional rights of all pro-lifers and for the lives of the preborn and their mothers who depend on our work.
Today, can you take just 2 minutes and send Brigid and Katie a message of support? While it may not seem like too much to you, it will mean the world to them!
