    Life Site News: “This incident sadly represents the intolerant attitude on college campuses today towards minority viewpoints expressed there. Rather than set up a counter exhibit to promote abortion, the ‘pro-choice’ activists choose instead to suppress and mock the pro-life display,” wrote Jordan Lorence, senior vice president and senior counsel at the Alliance Defending Freedom, after the 2011 incident. “It is tragic that these students have failed to learn this important truth at a university campus that is at that is supposedly a marketplace of ideas.”

    Christian News: “‘Only unjust laws separate what people say from what they believe,’ commented ADF Senior Counsel Jordan Lorence following word that the case had been declined. ‘The First Amendment protects our freedom to speak or not speak on any issue without fear of punishment. We had hoped the U.S. Supreme Court would use this case to affirm this basic constitutional principle; however, the court will likely have several more opportunities to do just that in other cases of ours that are working their way through the court system.’”
