A double standard is being played out at a Washington State high school. A pro-life group formed by the students has claimed it was, “censored” by school officials and given, “less freedom than a gay rights group”. Earlier this month a similar situation occurred at University of Alabama.
Students for Life Allegedly Censored, Declared ‘More Controversial’ Than Gay Rights Group

A high school chapter of the pro-life group Students for Life is claiming that it was censored by the administration and given less freedom than a gay rights group.
“They’re clearly showing a double standard here,” Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, told The Christian Post last week. Hawkins accused the staff of Wilson High School in Washington State of showing favoritism to the local Gay-Straight Alliance group over the high school’s SFL chapter, especially regarding flyers.
Bryce Asberg, president of the Wilson High School SFL chapter, said the flyers were just one aspect of the school’s preference for the GSA. He also mentioned a struggle over a candlelight vigil and a day of silence. “I would definitely say that there’s some censorship involved and trying to block our rights of free speech,” Asberg said. “Our message is more controversial, but that doesn’t give them grounds to block our message.”
