Fox News is reporting that a California 7th grader and her family are suing her school because school officials would not allow her to wear a pro-life t-shirt:
One of the girl’s lawyers, Mark A. Thiel, said that the images on her shirt of a fetus in the womb were (the) same as those in her science textbooks. He said no student had complained about the shirt, and he said the girl’s parents were not called when the incident took place.
“This was a young girl, not even in high school. But they didn’t call,” he said.
One of the key questions in the case is whether the t-shirt displayed an inappropriate message. An attorney representing the family readily dismisses that concern:
First Amendment attorney William Becker, who represents (the mother), disagreed that the shirt could be seen as containing inappropriate messages.
“The message of the T-shirt is that life is sacred,” he said. “One would be very hard pressed to find anything wrong with that particular idea, except that some people do object to the political message.”
