NYC college recognizes pro-life club but must make policy changes

Monday, January 30, 2017

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Casey Mattox regarding CUNY Queens College’s decision Friday to recognize a pro-life student club in the wake of the club’s lawsuit, Queens College Students for Life v. Members of the City University of New York Board of Trustees:

“While Queens College has done the right thing in recognizing the Students for Life club, the college still needs to change its egregiously unconstitutional policies. Under those policies, the college will continue to deny funding to Students for Life from its members’ own student activity fees and violate the First Amendment freedoms of other students as well. Our lawsuit will continue until we ensure that Queens College’s policies respect the constitutionally protected freedoms of all students.”
