A New Mexico middle school has allegedly barred a pro-life student from forming a club for more than a year, propelling the student and his attorneys to send a Tuesday letter to the school calling out the injustice.
The Tuesday letter alleges that Rio Rancho Middle School has violated the First Amendment by refusing to give permission to a pro-life student seeking to form a club to educate other students about abortion and its alternatives.
The Thomas More Society, a group representing Students For Life (SFL), sent the letter on behalf of student Dylan Fredette who graduated from the school in 2018. The letter details repeated occurrences where the school principal refused to let Fredette form a club or ignored his requests to do so. Fredette met with school principal Lynda Kitts in November 2017 to discuss forming Phoenixes For Life.
