The University of Houston has agreed to give unrestricted access to its main plaza next month to an anti-abortion group. I'm as pro-choice as they come, but UH was wrong to restrict these guys to a quieter corner of campus. Free speech means free speech, even for ugly and hateful things. As long as they're not engaged in an illegal activity, the Pro-Life Cougars have the same right to speak as anyone else.
Of course, it would be just fine in my book if they're met by a peaceful group of pro-choice demonstraters exercising their right to speak as well.Posted by Charles Kuffner on August 21, 2002 to Elsewhere in Houston
