Lifenews.com Two Fargo, North Dakota high schools have finally allowed pro-life students to organize a pro-life club on campus after initially discriminating against them. Fargo North and Davies High Schools have officially recognized two Students for Life Clubs organized by pro-life students Brigid O’Keefe and Katie McPherson. The approval came in response to a demand letter sent by the Thomas More Society on behalf of the students and Students for Life of America, challenging as unconstitutional the schools’ denial of the pro-life clubs. “We are glad that the District and High School Administrators in Fargo have recognized the First Amendment rights of all students, including pro-life students,” said Jocelyn Floyd, Thomas More Society Associate Counsel. “High-schoolers do not lose their right to form clubs and speak their message just because they are pro-life. Rather, they should be encouraged to add their voices to the marketplace of ideas, as the pro-life students at Fargo North and Davies will now be able to do.”
