A middle school in Rio Rancho, New Mexico is finally allowing students to start a pro-life group. However, the road to get there was not at all an easy one, as you’ll clearly see from the details.
In fact, the victory was part of a hard fought battle waged by a nonprofit legal group who sent a claim of discrimination to the school after they initially refused to allow the group to form.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is what happens when you fight back.
The school initially denied the group’s formation in 2017 when eighth-grade student Dylan Fredette attempted to set up Students for Life, the Albuquerque Journal reported. Fredette even had a teacher who had volunteered to moderate the group if approved.
School principal Lynda Kitts reportedly told Fredette that creating such a group would not be fair to those who are pro-choice and denied his request.
In response, the Thomas More Society, a nonprofit legal group, began sending letters of complaint to the district superintendent and the school itself, noting that the principal’s decision violated the student’s First Amendment rights, according to the Journal.
The group also threatened to file a federal civil rights action suit if the district didn’t reply to the letter or permit the formation of the club.
The Thomas More Society announced last week that the school decided to permit the club.
A spokesperson for the school district stated that another school had put together an anti-abortion group and that the group was supported by the district.
The main reason they claim to have been against the school in Rio Rancho is because certain processes weren’t followed.
The Thomas More Society had a different take on the matter:
“The Thomas More Society pointed out that Principal Lynda Kitts was wrong to deny a pro-life group at Rio Rancho Middle School. She stated such a club was ‘too controversial’ and that other students might disagree with the pro-life point-of-view. She refused to approve the pro-life club even after she was asked to reconsider her denial,” Mannix explained.
The good news is, these students now can form their club and boldly stand up for the life and rights of our most vulnerable citizens: the unborn.
