Student Suspended for Wearing Pro-Life T-Shirt

According to the Cybercast News Network a student at Fillmore Central High near Buffalo is suing for being forced to remove a pro-life t-shirt. The shirt reportedly reads, "Abortion is Homicide. You will not silence my message. You will not mock my God. You will stop killing my generation. Rock for Life."

This message does seem unnecessarily provocative in a high school, especially with all the unstable liberal militants likely to be among the staff and student body. However, the student was reportedly not only told to remove the shirt, but suspended. If the suspension was not for disciplinary reasons separate from the message on the shirt, then it was unjust, but a federal lawsuit seems excessive.

Would "I ♥ Partial Birth Abortions" be considered acceptable?
