Campus Pro-Life challenges uCalgary censure in court

April 14, 2011

Found guilty of non-academic misconduct by the University of Calgary for continually displaying graphic posters involving abortion, members of a pro-life club are taking their case to court. 7 Campus Pro-Life members were initially found guilty by university administration of non-academic misconduct last May, a decision upheld on appeal in August and confirmed by the board of governors in January. The club's president says she was disappointed that she and her fellow group members never had a hearing before the board. uCalgary previously issued a statement after its ruling saying it isn't opposed to students sharing their beliefs about abortion on campus; however, the institution has safety and security concerns with the group's display. The students' lawyer expects a hearing before a judge could be held in July. Calgary Herald | CBC
