Student free to wear pro-life t-shirt to school
The student at Crossroads Middle School, in Lewisberry, was told Sept. 8 to turn his T-shirt inside out because it was a distraction. The white T-shirt had "abortion is not health care" written on it with what appears to be a black marker.

The child's father, William Boyer, of Fairview Township, filed a lawsuit in federal court Oct. 5, saying the T-shirt should be allowed because it's an issue of free speech. The Harrisburg-based Independence Law Center and Alliance Defense Fund, Christian law group, are representing Boyer and his son.

Today, the school district and lawyers for the child, who is identified only as E.B. in the lawsuit, agreed to a temporary compromise while the sides work out a settlement.

The agreement allows the child to wear his shirt to school. He can also wear other religious or anti-abortion shirts, so long as they don't create a distraction, according to the settlement. The school still has the right to limit clothing that interferes with the school day.

Lawyers for the father and son called the temporary agreement a "victory."
