Officials at America’s largest Catholic university denied a student group’s request to display pro-life posters on campus out of concern that their message may provide other students.
The message on the posters proclaimed, “Unborn lives matter.”
The DePaul University College Republicans created the stark, white lettering on black sign and submitted it to the administration for approval, with the belief that its distinctly pro-Catholic message would be a shoo-in.
DePaul University President Rev. Dennis H. Holtschneider ruled against their display, citing a need to shield other students from “bigotry” under the “cove of free speech.”
