If you can legally hand out rubber condoms in school, you should be able to hand out rubber fetuses
The rule should apply equally to both.
No Church was passing these out at school, which would be highly inappropriate and rightfully struck down. The students were passing these out as individuals, and it is nothing but an exercise of free speech. Even a student group, if it did not represent a specific Church, should be allowed such liberties, if they are operating within the normal limits of such organizations.
I think the reason this sort of thing was opposed is obvious. Someone in the school system is pro-abortion and didn't want this message available. I note from another news source that two different reasons are being given. The first reason is that the dolls were not pre-approved. This was the initial reason in spite of the fact that other items had been allowed without any approval and that there is nothing in the handbook about an approval being needed. Then, the reason evolved to the violaiton of an advertising rule because of the pregnancy help care center information attached to the doll. This is an actual violation and could be easily remedied. Yet the fact that a reason was sought after the fact reveals the motives of the district as being less than honorable.
