The Thomas More Law Center (“TMLC”), a national, public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, has announced that it will provide legal guidance to students participating in a national pro-life walk out organized by California teen Brandon Gillespie. With the pro-life walk out, Gillespie seeks to answer the question of whether “Not One More” applies to all children, regardless of their age or birth status.
The walkout is scheduled to take place on April 11, 2018 at 10:00am and last for 17 minutes to honor the lives of the millions of children lost to abortion. In March, approximately 3,000 public schools across the nation gave students permission to walk out of classes to protest gun control laws as an expression of their free speech. In response, Brandon Gillespie, announced his plans for a comparable free speech pro-life demonstration. To view Gillespie’s tweet click here.
Students seeking to participate in the pro-life walkout should follow standard school policies and get the necessary permission from their school prior to the walk out.
Richard Thompson, TMLC President and Chief Counsel stated that the “Law Center will provide legal help, free of charge, to students as they prepare to exercise their constitutional rights to stand up for life and to students who encounter a pro-abortion double standard at their schools.”
