ADF sues university over pro-lifers confined to 'free speech zone'

A public university is requiring a Christian group to post warning signs near its pro-life display because campus authorities fear some students might be offended.  

Boise State administrators not only require Abolitionists4Life to put up the warning signs, they're also restricting members to a "free speech zone."  

David Hacker of Alliance Defending Freedom says the pro-life students are restricted to their "zone" and not allowed to talk to students and hand our information beyond it.

"Boise State said, Once you reserve one of our 'speech zones,' you have to stay inside that zone," Hacker explains.

Meanwhile, leftist groups on the Boise State campus are not required to follow the same rules. Planned Parenthood members were allowed to hand out condoms, and a second far-left group did not reserve "free speech" space but displayed anti-religious and pro-abortion signs.

Hacker says ADF has filed a lawsuit against Boise State, arguing that what Abolinists4Life is doing is fully protected by the First Amendment.
