I am writing to express my support for Principal Williams and Carmel High school for their decision to ask the Teens for Life club to take down a pro-life poster that was displayed in the high school. Our school should be a place that is free from political or religious slogans that diminish others beliefs that do not agree with the ones promoting their agenda.
Unfortunately, some of the parents of the Teens for Life club have invited Liberty Counsel, an outside legal agency, to file a lawsuit against the school. I want to encourage the parents of this club to disengage from lawsuits against our school. The issue of abortion is one that needs to be discussed within each family and faith tradition, but our school needs to be a place of safety and respect of all people.
