Students Sue Professor for Rubbing Out Pro-Life Chalk Messages

Students at the University of California, Fresno sued a professor Thursday for wiping away pro-life chalk messages that were approved by the university.

The Students for Life group at Fresno and the group Alliance Defending Freedom are suing Dr. Gregory Thatcher, who teaches public health at the university, for scrubbing out pro-life messages the group had chalked on a walkway earlier in May, according to a press release obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“We have a teacher [who’s] telling us to get rid of it,” an unnamed student confronted by Students for Life for wiping out the chalk said in the video.

The female student then directed the camerawoman to Thatcher.

“You had permission to put it down,” said Thatcher while scrubbing out a message. “I have permission to get rid of it. This is our part of free speech.

“College campuses are not free speech areas. Do you understand? Obviously, you don’t understand.”
