Group: Principal should allow anti-abortion flyers

UNION, Ky. (AP) – A national anti-abortion group says a northern Kentucky high school student’s right to free speech is being denied after a principal deemed the content of fliers he created “too controversial” to post around the campus.

The Kentucky Enquirer ( reports Students for Life of America said in a release that Ryle High School Principal Matthew Turner rejected six of seven fliers created by 18-year-old senior Patrick Edwards, who wanted to post them to advertise the school’s Students for Life club.

A letter from attorneys for Students for Life says if Turner doesn’t allow the fliers to be posted by Tuesday, they will sue.

Turner said the district’s attorneys are reviewing the letter, but that “the policies we have in place are in full compliance with the law.”
