Victory at high schools after rejection by officials
by Bob Unruh
The science is clear these days: An unborn child is just that, an unborn child, not “tissue” as the abortion industry has insisted, activists say.
And when it comes to protecting that life, there’s a younger generation that understands what is at stake and is willing to act.
Two recent examples are the successful efforts of students, in the face of strong opposition, to establish formally recognized pro-life clubs at Davies High School and Fargo North High School in Fargo, North Dakota.
Students Brigid O’Keefe at Fargo North and Katie McPherson at Davies High needed the help of lawyers at the Thomas More Society when their initial applications were rejected by school officials.
See what you can do to make America pro-life, in “Abortion Free: Your Manual for Building a Pro-Life America One Community at a Time.”
“Going public with pro-life beliefs is not easy, but while we have seen a trend of high school administrations not recognizing the legal right of pro-life students to have their clubs, we have also seen a trend of really young pro-lifers not afraid to speak out on behalf of those hurt by abortion – preborn babies and their mothers,” Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life, wrote in a recent commentary.
