Today, Students for Life of America is calling for the University of Alabama to reverse their decision to tear down a pro-life bulletin board and issue an apology to Bama Students for Life.
Two weeks ago, the University removed a pro-life display, without notice after it had been up for several seeks, citing it was “offensive and graphic.” In justifying their decision, an administrator told the group they were “lucky” to have their display up as long as it was.
The display featured several abortion-related facts, pictures of women who died as a result of having an abortion, and two small pictures of aborted babies, was among numerous other student group displays.
Bama Students for Life have retained Alliance Defending Freedom as legal counsel and plan 2 days of public events to address this troubling loss of First Amendment rights and discrimination.
The activities will be on February 19-20, with more details to follow.
Claire Chretien, President of Bama Students for Life, added:
“Bama Students for Life is very concerned about the University’s censorship of our pro-life display. We have a right to express the truth about abortion and its devastating effects on the defenseless humans it kills and their mothers. We are looking forward to Rev. Mahoney’s visit and hope that the University will right this wrong.”
Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Students for Life’s Campus Advisor and Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, stated:
