The liberal media has given wall to wall coverage of the far left students protesting guns with school walkouts and now a march. Now some pro-life students are planning a school walkout to protest abortion. Will the media give them fair coverage?
Student Organizing Pro-Life School Walkout
A student at Rocklin High School in Sacramento, California, is using social media to organize a pro-life walkout following the student walkout last week to promote gun control.
Student Brandon Gillespie (pictured) says he is challenging whether there is a double standard that allows students to walk out of school to advocate for gun control, but not to protest abortion.
Gillespie says he is using the hashtag #Life “to honor all the lives of aborted babies pretty much, all the millions of aborted babies every year,” reports the local CBS affiliate.

Gillespie says his history teacher, Julianne Benzel, inspired him to consider the walkout against abortion.
Benzel was placed on paid leave last week for questioning whether students against abortion would be permitted to walk out of class in the same way thousands of students walked out of class during instruction time on March 14 to promote gun control.
Complaints were made against Benzel by some who said her questions were “anti-abortion,” resulting in the teacher being placed on leave.
“[If schools] are going to allow one group of students to get up during class and walk out to protest one issue, would they still give the same courtesy to another group of students who wanted to get up and walk out to protest?” she asked, according to Fox News Insider. “And I used the example of abortion.”
We will be paying close attention to how the media covers this. Or doesn’t cover it, for that matter.
