An ideological battle on abortion erupts in the Carmel High School cafeteria


An ideological battle on abortion erupts in the Carmel High School cafeteria
Indianapolis Star

An ideological free speech battle between two Carmel High School student groups on opposing sides of the abortion debate has taken yet another twist.This time, a group of students who support abortion rights is suing Carmel Clay Schools in federal court, claiming that Carmel High administrators violated its First Amendment rights by not allowing the group to hang a banner expressing support for a woman's right to choose.The students from âVoices Unitedâ are crying foul, in large part because the administration just recently allowed another student group, "Teens for Life," to hang its banner.Voices United students are represented by the ACLU of Indiana. Defendants include the school district, Carmel High School and the school's principal.The developments have thrust Carmel into the center of a larger ongoing discussion throughout the country over First Amendment rights, particularly religious expression in public schools.
