Thomas More Society files lawsuit over denial of pro-life school club

Jocelyn Floyd
This week on FOT Jocelyn Floyd, associate counsel of the Thomas More Society will join us for a discussion of the filed a lawsuit against West Career and Technical Academy (WCTA) and Clark County School District, Las Vegas, NV on behalf of student Angelique Clark. The lawsuit claims that school administrators have violated Angelique’s free speech rights by denying her application to form a pro-life club at the school.

Angelique Clark submitted her application to start her Pro-Life Club at West Career and Technical Academy in December 2014. After months of no response from the school administration, she was finally told in February 2015 that Assistant Principal Allen Yee had denied the club. Angelique met with Mr. Yee and was given a variety of reasons why the club could not be approved, including that abortion was “controversial,” that a pro-life club would make pro-choice people feel left out, and that there were others “more qualified” to speak on the issue than a high school sophomore.
Join Deacon Mike Manno and Co-host Gina Noll for a discussion of this and other legal issues, including a story from Seattle where 1,300 teen girls as young as 13 got contraceptive counseling at school without parental consent.
Faith On Trial airs every Tuesday at 9 (a.m. Live) and 9 (p.m. rebroadcast) on Iowa Catholic Radio, 1150 AM; 88.5 & 94.5 FM and streaming on All times are Central.
