Parent takes issue with pro-life display at Waukesha West, officials stand by it

WAUKESHA -- Is it free speech, or is it inappropriate for high school? A pro-life banner on the walls at Waukesha West High School is drawing criticism from at least one parent. But school officials are standing by the display -- even though it has been taken down.

David LaBorde, principal of Waukesha West says the poster generated no controversy, but one parent said she is upset the image was even considered for display at the school.

"I was surprised -- and then I was unhappy," Jill Vendette said.

Surrounded by hundreds of tiny paper hearts, the poster reads "Abortion stops 3,000 beating hearts every day."

Vendette's son took a photo of the display and said it was placed in the main hallway -- visible to students when they walk into the building.

  1. "But school officials are standing by the display -- even though it has been taken down."....That sounds like a contradiction to me.

    1. It's back up now. There was a procedural problem, not a content or free speech problem.
