7th Grader Sues: Over Right to Wear Pro-Life T-Shirt

07/06/2009

If you thought free speech was still alive and well in America, you might think twice after this story.

“Smith and Rohrer ordered Plaintiff to remove her pro-life T-shirt and instructed Plaintiff to never wear her pro-life T-shirt at McSwain Elementary School ever again…

“Completely humiliated and held out for ridicule, Plaintiff complied with Defendants’ directives and removed her pro-life T-shirt, whereupon, Defendants seized and confiscated it. Defendants did not return Plaintiff’s property until the end of the school day.”

  1. How am I not at all surprised? I really hope this goes well.

    You really shouldn’t be.

    Wow, that’s hard to believe, but oh so believable at the same time. What really bugs me is that the man thinks her wearing that shirt is going to change anything. It may make somebody think about the issue, but it won’t change what they believe in their hearts. I do not change my ways of thinking or beliefs from reading a shirt, and if somebody that has a different belief than me wants to wear a shirt proclaiming their belief, they can go right ahead. Nobody is that easily persuaded to believe something, and that girl had a right to proclaim her beliefs through a shirt. What’s he going to do next, make me take off my Yellowcard shirt because he doesn’t like the band?
