In a victory for free speech a US Professor who wiped away a pro-life chalk messages at Fresno University in 2017 has been ordered to pay $26,000 in fees.

The pro-abortion Professor at Fresno State University was triggered by a chalk messages one of which stated

“Support pregnant and parenting students”

The message had been approved by University authorities but Professor Greg Thatcher who accompanied by some of his student’s began rubbing out the chalk messages despite being confronted on camera by the pro-life students.

The Students of Life organisation on campus with the aid of the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) filed a lawsuit against the Professor.

According to the ADF Thatcher was ordered never to interfere with Students for Life at Fresno State again and had to pay nearly $26,000 in attorney fees to student Bernadette Tasy and another student club member.

This judgement comes shortly after US President Trump announced his intention to sign an executive order protecting free speech on University campuses that receive government funding.

President Trump made decision to take action after a number of attacks on conservative students including one in which a student in UC Berkley was violently assaulted and injured by a leftist student for simply speaking in public.

The student who was attacked, Hayden Williams, was invited to speak alongside President Trump at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference while the thug who attacked him has been charged with three felonies and is potentially facing serious prison time.
