Teen Wins Fight for Antiabortion Club at School
My 16 year old niece lives in Virginia. She has been trying to start a pro-life club in the public school she attends. The purpose of the club in her words: "To educate people about the biggest holocaust that is going on right here in the United States. To come together and pray to end abortion. To be a voice for my generation and a voice for those who cannot speak for themselves." She sought to promote teen sexual abstinence as well as oppose abortion . School administrators initially turned her down. But she would not take no for an answer.
After a legal challenge was filed, school officials, conceded they were wrong, and officially recognized the club Oct. 24.
