Campus Sidewalk Pro-Life Messages Scrubbed

School officials at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania were asked to scrub chalked pro-life messages from the campus sidewalks on Monday. The messages, written by members of Students for Life, were part of National Pro-Life Chalk Day. The school’s posting and chalking guidelines say that chalked messages must conform with the school’s nondiscrimination campaign, yet, as an attorney for Alliance Defending Freedom explained in a letter to the school, the right to free speech is protected under the Constitution and “guidelines” cannot be used to erase political messages with which the school disagrees.
