ADF: Banning pro-life shirt leads to lawsuit

by D. Bennett

The Alliance Defense Fund has filed suit against the West Shore (Penn.) School District in response to the district’s actions against a student wearing a t-shirt with the words, “Abortion is not Healthcare,” ADF reports.

School officials asked the student to remove the shirt, saying its message was “inappropriate” and could offend somebody.

“Pro-life students shouldn’t be censored for their views,” says David Cortman, ADF Senior Legal Counsel. “This student has been singled out even though his shirt caused no disruption and is clearly within the bounds of constitutionally guaranteed free speech.”
