Two high school students in Allentown, Pa., are filing a lawsuit against their school district, alleging “discrimination and a violation of their free-speech rights after their failed attempt to start an anti-abortion club,” Fox News reports.
The students, Elizabeth Castro and Grace Schairer, are suing because the school rejected their proposed club “Trojans for Life.” The school district said that their club idea is too political and too controversial.
The Thomas More Society, a Chicago law firm, has filed suit on behalf of the two girls in the Parkland School District in Allentown. The school district claims that they would have approved the club if the girls “changed its mission, abandoned certain activities and gave up fundraising rights.” (RELATED: Taxpayer-Funded University Gives Out Social Justice Certificates For WEARING SWEATERS)
