Prolife Teen wins in Court

Catholic News Agency reports that "A federal judge has ruled that a high school principal cannot prohibit a student from wearing his pro-life shirt in (his public high) school."

The school, Fillmore Central High School in Filmore, NY, had ordered a student to refrain from wearing his prolife t-shirt to school. The t-shirt said, “Abortion is Homicide. You will not silence my message. You will not mock my God. You will stop killing my generation. Rock for Life” and distributed by the American Life League’s Rock for Life group.

As is all too common in our society, the school allowed other students to wear t-shirts that were violent or had sexual content, but disallowed the student in question to wear his t-shirt with the prolife message.

The shirt is sold by the American Life League.

Oh, for the days of dress codes, when t-shirts were verboten in high school.

Exactly! I am glad my ds has uniforms--it makes things much easier!

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
