    The 1st Amendment says quite the opposite. What part of THAT don't you understand?

    So does that excuse your actions then? Because other people didn't bother with reading comprehension, it's okay you didn't?

    And for the second time you imply their literature isn't fact based.
    And for the second time, I did no such thing. I have absolutely no idea what their literature is. What I'm saying is that a school should provide facts, not emotion or political spin, and should provide those facts in a controlled and moderated environment, not a lunch room when people are eating. And that belief goes for both sides of a politically charged argument like abortion.

    So are you done having a mini-meltdown now? Do you realize why your first post to me was ridiculous?

    Freedom of speech within reason.
    And if this were a group of gay students, you would be the first to scream about their right to free speech.

    I think it is "controversial" because it reminds a lot of people that a fetus is a human being and that makes them uncomfortable.

    This is not discussing political speech. I was discussing the potential for both pro-life groups and pro-choice groups to be a source of student harassment, ridicule, and divisive peer pressure.

    All three are unacceptable in schools and are met with consequences.

    That's no excuse to violate someone's rights.

    To an extent, true - but I think it has more to do with public acceptance toward liberal agendas than extraneous barking from the "gay crowd".

    All I'm saying is that you fight the fights you can win. In liberal bastions like schools, do what Kenny Rogers suggests: know when to hold 'em, and know when to fold 'em. They want to embrace homosexuality and demonize the lifer crowd. Is it hypocrisy? Yes. Will it change? Highly unlikely. Is it worth battling? Nope.

    What's it like to go through life thinking the whole world is against you?
