High School Girl Sues For Right To Organize Pro-Life Club

Being pro-life just is not politically correct, which makes it a problem for those in power who attempt to please every identity group.

As pro-lifers try to defend their views in the wake of the horrific Planned Parenthood secret video tapes, this one high school pro-lifer is not backing down.

Angelique Clark says she wanted to start a pro-life group on her school’s campus but was denied by the administration because abortion was controversial, would make people feel left out, and that others were “more qualified” to talk about the issue.

Clark teamed up with the religious legal group the Thomas More Society to file a lawsuit against her school, the West Career and Technical Academy, and the Clark County School District.

“When I first applied to form a pro-life club, I never imagined I would have to sue my school to be able to exercise my free speech rights,” Clark, a junior at the academy, said in a statement. “My fellow pro-life students and I simply want to make our voices heard and to educate other students on a topic that’s important to us – choosing life. We hope for a quick resolution that allows us to get the West Career and Technical Academy Pro-Life Club up and running as soon as possible.”

A spokeswoman from the school district told The Daily Caller News Foundation they have not yet been served and do not comment on pending litigation.

“We are proud of Angelique for not allowing her school administrators to trample her free speech rights,” said Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America. “She is determined to be a voice for the preborn and their mothers, even though she’s been faced with so much resistance,” stated Hawkins, adding, “We are thankful for our attorneys at the Thomas More Society who are standing up for Angelique’s right to form a Students for Life club.”

The world needs more young people like Clark who are willing to rise up against an establishment that attempts to silence the views of the pro-life movement.

Pro-lifers are constantly and falsely accused of being “extreme” for daring to believe that life begins at conception, but what is actually extreme is denying a high school students right to organize a club that aligns to the views of so many young people.
