These Students Will Walk Out to Protest Killing Babies, Not a Constitutional Right

After a student murdered classmates with a gun at a high school in Florida in February, liberals seized the moment to fire up teenagers to demand gun control.

All across the country, government school students “walked out” of class and called for restrictions on Americans’ Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

A different group of high school students intend to “walk out” not to protest against a constitutional right but in favor of protecting the voiceless and vulnerable unborn.

The Pro-Life Walkout will take place on Wednesday, April 11. From Breitbart:

Organized by Brandon Gillespie, a Rocklin High School junior from Sacramento, California, students participating in the event on April 11 will walk out of their schools at 10:00 a.m. in all time zones for 17 minutes – as did students who participated in the gun control walkout on March 14.

To date, Brandon has not heard definitively whether his school district will allow students from his school to participate in the pro-life walkout.

“I really want to test and see if there is a double standard at schools because the previous walkout on March 14 was school-sanctioned and it was for gun control,” he recently told Breitbart News in an interview. “So, I wanted to test the schools and see if they would allow a more conservative topic.”

Breitbart News reached out to both Chicago Public Schools – which supported the March 14 gun control walkout and organized student lesson plans around its theme – as well as the Los Angeles Unified School District about whether they would allow students to participate in the pro-life student walkout, but received no statements in response.
