Do Not Be Silent

Rebecca Gonsalves took a film photography class at her college in Florida.  Her professor told her to do something she is passionate about—and since she’s passionate against abortion, Rebecca told him she’ do something pro-life.  The professor was less than thrilled, saying, “I won’t give you a good grade if you do it on that.”  She responded this was discrimination and the professor replied, “Call it what you want but I’m warning you.”  So Rebecca did black and white photos of her holding pro-life signs and then went to a department head who assured her there would be no retribution.  Many pro-life students face harassment or discrimination, but they must stand strong in the face of censorship.  And there are pro-life legal firms to back them up if necessary.  Don’t be silent.
