A Pennsylvania High school, which is obviously run by liberals, is violating the First Amendment rights of some of their students with whom they disagree. They are only allowing approved speech, and forbidding others that they disagree with to enjoy their opinions
A high school in Allentown, Pennsylvania, is under fire for banning a pro-life club as being too controversial and political, but allowing pro-gay clubs. High School senior Liz Castro talked to Tucker Carlson Friday on Fox News about what school officials told her about her attempt to organize for the pro-life cause.
“They told me that we couldn’t have our club because it was too controversial and too political at the time,” Liz Castro explained.
Parkland High School allows a gay-straight alliance club, a political science club, a fashion club, a chess club, and other groups.
“That kind of club, an anti-abortion club,” Carlson asked, “is singularly offensive to the kind of people that run the schools isn’t it?”
“Yeah, you would think that public institutions and free speech would be a no-brainer,” said Kristin Hawkins, the president for Students for Life. “These are taxpayer-funded institutions and yet this is what we see time and time again in high schools and colleges across the country.”
“So do you suppose, Liz, if there was a club,” Carlson asked, “I dunno, a feminist club or women’s rights club, women’s empowerment club that supported legal abortion would they be allowed to organize on campus?”
“I feel like they may be able, they may allowed them to have their club,” Castro responded.
“We met all the requirements (but) were denied simply because we are pro-life,” Castro said, according to Life Site News. “As a club, our purpose is to create a life-affirming culture at our school, educate our peers on the issue of life, hold diaper drives to support pregnant and parenting students, and become a voice for those who cannot speak for themselves.”
“The school is not only denying my right to start a group but denying the opportunity for others at my school to learn about the greatest human rights social injustice of our time,” Castro concluded.
The Thomas More Society has taken up their cause and written a letter to the high school officials notifying them that they are violating the students’ Constitutional rights.
This Pennsylvania school is censoring these teenagers message about defending life. The school saying this group is controversial is absurd. The gay clubs are not controversial? The school officials are trying to indoctrinate young kids minds to accept the mentally ill liberal agendas. Good for these girls for not being intimidated by the school, and standing for their beliefs.
