Student sues SFCC over anti-abortion display

The Spokesman-Review

A Spokane Falls Community College student who was barred from putting up an anti-abortion display is suing the college in federal court in Spokane.

Beth Sheeran says the college violated her free speech rights.

The official complaint Sheeran filed in court states that when Sheeran and the Spokane Falls Christian Fellowship wanted to hold a pro-life event at the College on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the College refused to allow the event. Court documents say the College told Sheeran and SFCF “that their pro-life display was ‘offensive’ and ‘discriminatory.’”
