MN school district:  Politically incorrect pro-life club need not apply, but environmental club OK

District claims club ‘does not support student body as a whole’ but approves other non-curricular student groups

MINNEAPOLIS — Alliance Defense Fund attorneys filed a lawsuit Thursday on behalf of a student-led pro-life club against Independent School District #885 for denying the club, at St. Michael-Albertville High School, official status because it allegedly “does not support the student body as a whole.”  Despite that claim, school officials have recognized more than a dozen other non-curricular clubs, including the Environmental and Animé clubs, providing them with benefits and access currently denied to the pro-life student group, known as the All Life Is Valuable (ALIV) Club.

Case Name:  ALIV Club v. Independent School District #885
