Student Back in Class After Being Suspended Over Pro-Life Shirt


A Georgia high-school student was back in school today after being suspended earlier this week for refusing to take off his pro-life shirt, the Associated Press reported.

Brian Ramirez's black sweatshirt read, "Abortion is Homicide." When a teacher asked him to take it off, he refused and was sent to the principal's office. Assistant Principal Coley Krug told him he would get no credit in class every day he wore the shirt.

"It's just something I feel very strongly about," Ramirez said. "I just don't think people understand or take the time to understand my point of view."

Krug said Ramirez was being disciplined because he disobeyed his teacher's request.

Laura Nurse, a spokeswoman for Gwinnett County schools, said the incident will not be in Ramirez's school records.

"Once the issue was fully investigated," she said, "it was determined that there was no substantial disruption in the classroom, nor was there any disciplinary or dress code infraction."
