After a teacher was suspended for offending liberals by just ASKING if the school administration would support a school walkout to protest abortion, a student has taken up her challenge.
This week, Rocklin High School students are using social media to organize a pro-life walkout using the hashtag #life.
“To honor all the lives of aborted babies pretty much. All the millions of aborted babies every year,” said organizer Brandon Gillespie.
He says his history teacher inspired the idea.
As thousands of students across the country walked out of class demanding strict gun laws, in honor of the Parkland shooting victims, Benzel was placed on paid administrative leave when she asked students to consider whether there’s a double standard in the national school walkout.
“I would like a conversation about when is too much? And are we going allow this on the other side?” said Julianne Benzel
The principal at Rocklin High declined to meet with us for an on-camera interview, but a district spokeswoman tells us, he does plan to sit down with the student about the possible abortion walkout, and that’s not going over well with some of his peers.
That’s what you get when you change your rules in order to bow down to political correctness – eventually someone comes along and says “wait a minute, shouldn’t you be doing this for the right too?”
Brandon says protesting on school grounds is just the point.
“I would like to see if there really is a double standard and what will come of that,” he said.
He doesn’t have a date for the protest, but he does with the principal. Their meeting is set for this Friday.
Good for him. I think that we should probably listen to teens about political policy as much as we would take their advice about anything – which is not at all. But if he’s going to show up their hypocrisy, then I will applaud.
