Anti-abortion group files lawsuit against Oklahoma State University

Stillwater —  

An anti-abortion group has filed a federal lawsuit against Oklahoma State University after officials said the group couldn’t distribute leaflets with graphic images on campus.

Cowboys for Life filed the lawsuit Friday. The group is asking a federal judge to declare invalid OSU’s facility use policy, which dictates how and when groups can use university facilities. 

The lawsuit alleges that OSU refused to allow the group to display graphic images on signs and leaflets in heavily trafficked areas of campus.

OSU spokesman Gary Shutt tells The Oklahoman that university officials have not yet seen the lawsuit.

OSU’s facilities use policy allows university officials to limit expressive demonstrations in order to avoid disruption, to prevent scheduling two events in the same place at once or to protect the public order.
