A student at Colonial Forge High School is suing Stafford County's public school system for refusing to let her start an anti abortion club.
The conservative Alliance Defense Fund is representing the student, who is not named in the lawsuit because she's a minor claiming her constitutional rights were violated.
Colonial Forge Principal Lisa Martin denied the request for the
club, saying it doesn't relate to the curriculum.
But Alliance Defense lawyer David Cortman said the school has other clubs that don't appear to be directly linked with studies such as the Young Republicans, Young Democrats, and Students Against Destructive Decisions.
The student's family contacted the Alliance Defense Fund, which is representing the girl for free. The suit, filed September 12th in federal court, asks the school division to pay the fund's legal fees.
