Angelique Clark, a sophomore at West Career and Technical Academy in Las Vegas, says the Clark County School District denied her application to charter a pro-life club as a chapter of Students for Life of America, the nation’s largest youth pro-life organization. The district, according to Clark, said, “It was too controversial, and it would be too exclusive, and it would leave out pro-choice people.”
Fox News reported that in a statement, the school district said that all the school district’s clubs must have a faculty adviser before being allowed to form an official club and that Clark’s proposed club did not. But Fox affiliate KVVU reports that it obtained a copy of Clark’s charter application, dated December 2014, and it in fact does include a faculty adviser’s signature.
The plot thickens.
I received an email from a representative from Students for Life, which said the school’s vice principal told Clark that abortion is too controversial. Yet according to the email, this school has a Gay-Straight Alliance club. The vice principal also allegedly told Clark that there are “far more qualified” people to talk about abortion than a 16-year-old high-school sophomore. Wow. Read the entire story.
