A young Iowa woman is accusing her college sorority of kicking her out after she voiced her pro-life views on Facebook.
The trouble began when Dreeszen posted a photo of the rally and later a message on Facebook that said, “220 people are here in Des Moines protesting taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood…not exactly something that you can ignore #alllivesmatter #defundPP #ProtestPP.”
Dreeszen said her Facebook friends began debating in the comments sections of her posts, including several members of her sorority, Delta Phi Delta. Dreeszen, who now works for the Polk County, Iowa Republican Party, said she liked a few of the comments but otherwise did not participate in the conversations.
“The next day, a Delphi alum who graduated a year before I did started sending me nasty messages that were personally attacking me, my friends, and John (Dreeszen’s fiancée), calling him a murderer because he served in Iraq and Afghanistan … I tried to defend myself and John, but realized that the situation was too emotionally charged and I blocked my friend,” Dreeszen told the news site.
The trouble didn’t end there. Six weeks later, Dreeszen was caught off guard when the Cornell College chapter of Delta Phi Delta sent her an email announcing that the sorority’s judicial board voted to revoke her alum status, according to the report. The board accused her of violating an article of the sorority’s constitution, which states, “Members should respect each other and the group.”
