Western Kentucky University: Support art student’s response to public pro-life display.
Hilltoppers for Life placed 4,000 crosses on bleachers on the Western Kentucky University campus to protest abortion. An art student who felt bombarded by the display responded by placing condoms on some of the crosses. The administration is now demanding that she apologize for her public response to a public display. Show support for this art student and tell WKU to allow freedom of speech for ALL people.
I really want to get through to my school administration that it is not ok to let one group speak out for what they believe and then try to punish another that is doing the same thing but with an opposite stance. WKU has been under fire before for freedom of speech. They got national attention earlier this year for new rules they were trying to create that would censor what students could say about WKU on social media. It was because of all of the national attention they received that they decided to back off. I want the same thing to happen here. It’s difficult to be pro-choice and fight for reproductive rights, especially here in the bible belt. Please help me and my fellow students make our administration actually LISTEN to us. Sign the petition and spread it.
Putting condoms on anti-choice displays deserves all the support.
They’re even threatening to fail her based on this which goes against policy. Here is a professor of that school’s response.
