N. Idaho Group to Protest Complete Abolition of Abortion
COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho (AP) — Coeur d'Alene High School officials in northern Idaho say abortion protesters plan to demonstrate near the school Monday. The Coeur d'Alene Press reports that Principal Warren Olson on Friday sent a letter to parents telling them about the plans of the Abolitionist Society of North Idaho. The society is part of a group called Abolish Human Abortion, which wants to eliminate abortion without exception. In the letter, Olson says students will be asked not to engage the demonstrators on the public right of way in front of the school. The school says the group is likely to hold signs and hand out fliers with graphic images. Group member Scott Herndon says members plan to also demonstrate at Post Falls High School, probably within a month.
