Pro-life students take abortion display fight to court

CALGARY — Eight University of Calgary students who oppose abortion say they are taking a fight over a controversial display to court.

CALGARY — Eight University of Calgary students who oppose abortion say they are taking a fight over a controversial display to court.

The students are members of Campus Pro-Life and were found guilty by the university last year of non-academic misconduct.

The decision was upheld by the university’s appeal board and the board of governors.

Group president Alanna Campbell says the students weren’t given a chance to argue their case either time, and will now take it to Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench.

She says they don’t believe they have done anything wrong and are standing by their principles.

The display featured graphic photos and compared abortion to atrocities such as the Holocaust.
