Imagine a group of sixth graders sitting at lunch discussing the lesson they just had on childbirth. One of those students is your daughter. When another student asks her how she feels about abortion, your daughter says that it’s wrong and then decides to hand out pro-life fliers that read:
“Save the baby humans. Stop abortion.”
Would you be proud of her actions? Would you encourage her to continue on to stand up for the biblical principles she has been taught?
Now what would you do if you were contacted by the school’s director who told you that other students found the pro-life fliers to be offensive and that your daughter had to stop handing them out during or after school hours?
That’s what happened to the parents of a 6th grade girl at Nova Classical Academy (a charter school) in St Paul, Minnesota. The parents were also told that students are supposed to receive written permission from the school before handing anything out to other students and she had not followed the policy. Furthermore, they were told that the pro-life message was not in line with the school’s educational goals and that only students enrolled in their School of Rhetoric [high school]were allowed to participate in political activism.
