    WorldNetDaily: “Public schools should encourage, not shut down, the free exchange of ideas,” said ADF Legal Counsel Matt Sharp. “The speech and literature distribution policies of many schools districts in Pennsylvania are virtually identical to the ones the 3rd Circuit struck down. These policies violate the First Amendment right of students to distribute religious materials at school.” The letter says, “The Supreme Court has made it clear that students ‘do not shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate.’” Moreover, the letter states, “The Supreme Court has definitively held that religious expression – whether spoken, written, or symbolic – is protected by the First Amendment.” “America’s public schools should recognize the constitutionally protected freedom of all students, regardless of their religious views,” said Senior Legal Counsel Jeremy Tedesco. “We hope that school districts in Pennsylvania will respect these freedoms and revise their policies accordingly.”

Employee accuses Planned Parenthood of committing bait-and-switch abortions

    Jill Stanek at LifeSiteNews: I spoke with Alliance Defending Freedom attorney Michael Norton about this apparent PP hustle. He said if it is true that PP isn’t providing full disclosure before the onset of one’s abortion in order to pull her in so deep financially she feels she can’t back out, then PP may be violating a state health standard and may also be liable for medical malpractice, which is suable. “Women who have been tricked and coerced to complete the abortion procedure after being baited to begin the process may have claims of fraud, failure to provide adequate informed consent, reckless endangerment, and pain and suffering,” said Norton. “In addition, Planned Parenthood may be committing both civil and criminal violations.”
