The facts are this. A non-governmental organized a protest. Some school kids in Howell schools are going to have a silent protest against abortion. WHMI mistakenly reported that Wendy Day has organized this. That is incorrect. These are the organizers. Brian Kemper and Stand True Ministries. If Wendy organizated this, I would not support this as government should not be pressuring towards views.
Wendy's only involvement is this comment on her blog.
One Tuesday, October 24th, students will be entering our schools with duct tape on their mouths, or red arm bands to show their support for the unborn. These kids will take a brave step toward civil activism. I hope these kids are supported as they exercise their freedom of speech. So far, Howell High School and Hutchings will have students participating.

Give up your voice for those who have no voice.
Her only involvement in this is that one comment. For that, the left went off their rocker once again. Never mind that fact that Wendy is one person on the school board, surrounded by a board of Chuck Breiner yesmen. The old boys club is threatened and is no longer unopposed. Wendy had the highest number of votes in the highest recent turnout in a school board election.
I do have to wonder if the left there would have the same reaction if the students were wearing rainbow armbands? I highly doubt it. In the left's view, only one side should be allowed. Theirs.
For the record my stance is this. Government shouldn't organize, nor censor this. Free speech isn't just what one side agrees with.
