Miami University Trustees sued over pro-life exhibit ruling

first_imgOxford, Oh.— Attorneys with Alliance Defending Freedom filed a federal lawsuit to reverse a school administration decision at Miami University to shut down a pro-life display.Since 2015, Students for Life of Miami University of Ohio, Hamilton, has regularly conducted its Cemetery of the Innocents display on the campus’s Central Quad. The display features small crosses placed in the ground to commemorate the lives lost to abortion, along with an explanatory sign.In October, Students for Life President Ellen Wittman e-mailed a university official to request approval to hold the display once again. The official responded by saying that the group could conduct the display only if it placed signs around campus warning people about its content. She justified this warning sign requirement by saying she feared that the pro-life display might cause “emotional trauma” for those who might view it and because she wanted to help them “better protect and manage their emotional reactions to the display.” Additionally, she offered to meet with the group to discuss “less harmful” ways of expressing its pro-life views.“No university official has the authority to censor student speech simply because of how someone might respond to it,” said ADF Legal Counsel Travis Barham. “Like all government officials, public university administrators have an obligation to respect students’ free speech rights. The First Amendment secures the freedom of all students to participate in the marketplace of ideas, and it prohibits university officials from imposing trigger warnings that restrict what some students can say to spare the feelings of others.”The university’s speech code gives administrators broad powers to grant or deny exhibits on campus. Students must request a permit seven days in advance, explain the message and/or purpose and to let officials edit the exhibit as they see fit.The lawsuit-Students for Life at Miami University of Ohio, Hamilton v. Trustees of Miami University of Ohio, seeks to point out the importance of teaching the full meaning of First Amendment to the next generation of leaders, legislators and judges.“The unnecessary obstacles students experienced at Miami University of Ohio in Hamilton sadly is all too common on campuses across the country,” said Students for Life President Kristan Hawkins. “Students peacefully trying to hold an exhibit that inspires conversation with fellow students about their love and concern for preborn infants and their mothers should be protected.”last_img read more

India vs Australia: We failed to absorb pressure in Sydney, says Rohit Sharma

first_imgIndia vs Australia: Brief Scores – Australia (288/5) beat India (254/9) by 34 runs. Virat Kohli said MS Dhoni ‘s dismissal was the turning point in India’s 34-run loss to Australia in the first ODI at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Saturday. Chasing 289, India managed only 254 for 9. (Full Scorecard)Rohit Sharma said the time to learn was now over and India’s batsmen needed to start executing their plans after a 34-run defeat to Australia in the first ODI at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Rohit, whose stylish 133 went in vain after an ordinary performance by his colleagues, had every reason to feel aggrieved.Chasing 289, India managed only 254 for 9 off their 50 overs. Rohit scored 133 of those runs for India off only 129 balls. MS Dhoni was the next highest scorer for India with 51 off 96 balls. In fact, Dhoni’s inability to accelerate put additional pressure on Rohit and the batsmen coming in against a top-quality Australian attack.Rohit now has 22 ODI hundreds and 7 of those have come against Australia. In 2018, Rohit had scored 1030 runs from 19 ODIs and led India to victory in the Nidahas Trophy and Asia Cup. As the vice-captain, Rohit watched in horror as his partners failed to either stay long enough or up the ante in what is their last leg of preparations for the World Cup.The Indian team has often taken solace from the fact that each game is a learning curve. But on Saturday, Rohit was blunt and said it was time to perform now.”The wicket was still playing good and we knew we could put some of their bowlers under pressure. But unfortunately, we kept losing wickets at the wrong time.. the first three wickets (for 4 runs) and then when we were going strong and building a partnership, unfortunately MS got out.advertisement”Obviously, we knew it was going to be a hard task when we lost three wickets and we had to build partnerships.. We were way behind the asking run rate while we were recovering from the early damage but again, these things happen.”These are the games that will teach you a lot as batsmen. You will be put under pressure and there will be times when you have to combat this kind of games where you lose wickets and what you do after that.”So I think it was a good learning but again, I think we have said that enough about learning now.. it’s time to go out there and execute. Take the pressure, absorb the pressure and take it forward. International cricket is all about absorbing pressure and today was the perfect example when there was pressure and we were not able to absorb pressure,” Rohit Sharma said at the post-match press conference.On Thursday, Rohit had said India have more or less finalised their core for the World Cup in England but said nobody was assured of a berth.After the Sydney defeat, questions are bound to be asked of certain players. It was a great chance for the likes of Rayudu and Karthik to stand up and deliver. Besides, somebody might have to take a look at MS Dhoni’s role – another slow innings from a once great finisher left India with too much to do at the end.Rohit Sharma had a word of encouragement for Ravindra Jadeja, who played as the specialist all-rounder in Hardik Pandya’s absence. Jadeja failed to provide India with the kind of cameo that is expected of him as he fell for 8.”We believe in Jadeja to play those cameos whenever required. To go out and play shots immediately is not easy for any batsman.”Australian bowlers surprisingly got a lot of reverse swing.. It (the poor batting display) is not a concern but it’s an eye-opener,” Rohit said.Also Read | Not pleased with the way we played in Sydney, says Virat KohliAlso Read | MS Dhoni 5th batsman to score 10,000 ODI runs for IndiaAlso Read | Suspended Hardik, Rahul shouldn’t enjoy the perks of travelling with Team India: Gavaskarlast_img read more
