Indiana High School Faces Lawsuit After Removing Pro-Life Sign
It's not shocking that a high school removed a pro-life sign because one student found it offensive. I mean, an opposing viewpoint at school (see Pro-Choice High School Principal ATTACKS Pro-Life Advocates and Norman North High School Teacher: “To be white is to be racist”)? That's crazy talk. Also in the world of pro-life signs, this one is downright tame. It's not even G-rated. It's whatever rating would be appropriate for toddlers. If those toddlers weren't crushed with forceps years earlier. I know that quickly escalated to darkness. Was intended.
What makes this newsy is that the pro-life students are fighting back...
Administrators at Carmel High School are facing the threat of a lawsuit after removing a pro-life poster from the building.
Liberty Counsel, a nonprofit organization “dedicated to advancing religious freedom,” says administrators removed the poster display created by Carmel Teens for Life after another student complained that it was “offensive.”
The club reportedly spent over 25 hours painting the display which included 300 hearts, each representing 10 lives, to symbolize the written statement "3,000 Lives Are Ended Each Day."
First off, the whole changing to letters to make "abortion" into "adoption" thing?
That's some quality linguistics there. I'm being a little sarcastic, but you pro-lifers know how much we love you at LwC.
Because this sign is as offensive as a plate of grapes. A bundle of balloons. A box of free kittens. Amy Schumer hiding in a wooded cabin without internet, phone or any means of communicating her gross to the rest of the world. The sign isn't offensive at all. Unless of course if you've maybe had an abortion, are hoping to have an abortion, or know of someone who's had baby life sucked from their wombs, that is. Then maybe the sign would make you feel a modicum of regret.
So props to these students who lawyered up. The pro-life movement isn't just about making pretty signs of hearts and wordplay. It's not just about "praying for the unborn." Both are part of the battle, sure. But the larger goal is to end abortion. We're talking about life and death here, and we're in a war. Wars require fighting, so this group hiring some legal beagles is completely appropriate. Pro-lifers should never just lay down and take it. Lives actually depend on them standing up to pro-choice bullies who fight them at every turn.
And no, me saying "we're in a war" is not a call to action for you to weapon up and take anyone out. Please. We're keeping this war civil, without violence. At least the pro-life side. Pro-choicers are still crushing the lungs, heads, hearts and undreamed dreams of unborn children every day. Hopefully I've crystalized my opinion for you butchers.
And here's hoping the students win the lawsuit. A sign promoting adoption by a recognized pro-life students' group isn't exactly guerrilla artwork. Maybe the student who complained should have to explain what exactly is offensive about adoption. I thought "choices" was part of being "pro-choice."
