FTFA: As the court emphasized, it would have been unconstitutional for the school to outright forbid discussion of abortion, so long as that discussion was carried on in a non-disruptive way.

Sorry, but I've never seen an anti-abortion demonstration or presentation done in a productive, non-disruptive way. It's not the MO of these groups. They have to be as showboaty, pandering, and hyperbolic as possible or Jesus will frown upon them.

And if they really cared about "the truth", they'd have handed out something that looks like this:

Because that little tadpole is what a "fetus" looks like when the majority of abortions are performed. Not a poor man's prosthetic penis.

FTFA: So rubber fetuses legitimately disrupted these schools' learning environments, and the school administration had a way of shutting that whole thing down

I see what they did there...

Some anti-abortion freaks came to my college campus back in 2006. They brought along their giant placards of aborted fetuses and had their grade school-age children holding them. I was the president of the Young Conservatives at the time, but I didn't know what was going on until someone from my legal studies capstone class asked me if I brought them to campus. Taking a look out the window at what he showed me, I simply said "Fark me," skipped my class, and protested with the college Dems and women's center advocates. I even had people from my organization asking me if I brought them. After asking them to leave campus, the head freak actually insulted my church and pastor, saying that if I was protesting them that they were obviously substandard. I had to walk away or I would have decked him. After a few hours, they left. I had a migraine by that point. Luckily, a large-breasted friend gave my a temple massage that took it away.

Thankfully, my professor could appreciate the situation I was in and didn't care that I missed class.

anti-abortion is also more well known as pro-birthers.
Also known as prohibitionists.
Also known as the do as we the 0.000000000001% say or we will scream at you and thrown dead fetus matter in your taco bell meat.
Also sometimes known as victims of incest and rape and abandonment.

Many students pulled the dolls apart, tearing the heads off and using them as rubber balls or sticking them on pencil tops. Others threw dolls and doll parts at the "popcorn" ceilings so they became stuck. Dolls were used to plug toilets. Several students covered the dolls in hand sanitizer and lit them on fire. One or more male students removed the dolls' heads, inverted the bodies to make them resemble penises, and hung them on the outside of their pants' zippers.

Aaaaahahahahahaha!

I love this so much. This totally would have happened at my high school in the early 90s.

Think I'm going to go torrent "My So-Called Life" and moon over Claire Danes dyed red hair and doc martens and flannel.

This would have been way better than all the crappy anti-abortion stuff that happened at my high school. We had to create a "Spiritual baby" that was supposed to represent a baby in danger of being aborted, and then pray for it at all the different stages of its development.

They had a teacher do a speech about how she got pregnant in college and was going to have an abortion but then she found her spiritual baby from high school and decided to keep her kid and give it the same name she gave her fake spirit baby.

Catholic school can be really, really weird.

Not necessarily.  Under Tinker v. Des Moines School District, high school students are entitled to First Amendment rights unless their speech or conduct "materially disrupts classwork or involves substantial disorder or invasion of the rights of others."

Those kids acted properly. Some fundy whacko attention whores his pet project by distributing rubber fetuses and the kids treated it with the mocking irreverence it deserved.

It's rare that the kids give us any indication that they are going to be allright, but this is god damned for sure one of them.

No, I just went to a private high school where discipline was enforced.  The closest we got to this kind of behavior was reading Lord of the Flies in English class.
