SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Attorneys with the Alliance Defense Fund are ready to offer free legal help to students who participate in the Pro-Life Day of Silent Solidarity should the students’ First Amendment rights be violated. The event, being held Tuesday at schools across the U.S., offers pro-life students an opportunity to express their viewpoint on the subject of abortion.
“Pro-life students shouldn’t be discriminated against for expressing their beliefs, so ADF will be ready to defend any students who have their First Amendment rights violated,” said ADF Senior Legal Counsel David Cortman. “The Pro-Life Day of Silent Solidarity is a non-disruptive, student-led event occurring outside of instructional time. These students have the constitutional right to express their viewpoint on abortion just as other students have the right to express their views.”
The 6th annual Pro-life Day of Silent Solidarity is sponsored by Stand True Ministries, a pro-life youth organization led by President Bryan Kemper.
