Administrators at a Pennsylvania high school said "yes" to gay-straight alliance clubs and political science clubs but "no" to pro-life clubs because they are too "controversial" and "political."
Last fall, senior Elizabeth Castro and junior Grace Schairer attempted at Parkland High School to start a Students for Life club. Parkland already has a gay-straight alliance club, a political science club, a fashion club, a chess club, and other student-led groups.
They were told they needed an adviser. They got one, who later withdrew. But by March, they had an adviser and were all set to start the "Trojans for Life" club....

Christians need to change the laws for more creativity in homeschooling...so communities can come around these families. what happens when one of the spouses dies? or one of the spouse goes rogue and leaves or both have to work because the job the husband trained for is gone? (jobs have been so feminized and socialized it is often easier for the woman to find a job) .... church has to see reality for what it is...many families homeschool until the famous "wellness check" and child becomes autistic and cannot be handled without help...
this is why it is the Body of Christ and not the Bodies of Christ.
not all who have their children in public school do it by volition.
as some in Chinese church has said that putting the kids in their schools can be like a little bit of hell.
"We met all the requirements (but) were denied simply because we are pro-life," Castro said. "As a club, our purpose is to create a life-affirming culture at our school, educate our peers on the issue of life, hold diaper drives to support pregnant and parenting students, and become a voice for those who cannot speak for themselves."
"The school is not only denying my right to start a group but denying the opportunity for others at my school to learn about the greatest human rights social injustice of our time," Castro added.
‚ÄúLiz is being discriminated against by her school simply because she is pro-life and wants to share that message,‚ÄĚ Students for Life of America‚Äôs Kristina Hernandez told LifeSiteNews. ‚ÄúThat‚Äôs unconstitutional.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúWe are so proud to support Liz and her fellow pro-life students as we work to make sure they are allowed to form their Students for Life group,‚ÄĚ Hernandez added. ‚ÄúHer courage is an example to all the other pro-life students in the country who are facing similar situations and obstacles at their schools.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúStudents shouldn‚Äôt be afraid to come forward and fight for their free speech rights,‚ÄĚ Hernandez said, ‚Äúnot only to educate their peers on abortion but to help their peers who may be facing unplanned pregnancies"
