Should a Girl Have a Right to Wear Pro-Life Shirt to School?

When she was in the seventh grade last year, Anna Amador wore this graphic t-shirt to school for National Pro-Life T-Shirt Day. Her principal ordered her to change out of the "growing, growing, gone" shirt, a decision Anna's mom says violated her First Amendment rights. Now, on Anna's behalf, her mom is suing the school in federal court.

The school claims that the t-shirt, which shows a growing fetus, violated dress-code regulations against clothing with suggestions of "tobacco, drug or alcohol use, sexual promiscuity, profanity, vulgarity, or other inappropriate subject matter." It seems like the shirt falls under these broad rules, but the girl argues that the school inconsistently applied the dress code based on the subjective opinions of officials.

Do you think Anna had a right to wear this shirt?
