FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A lawyer for one of the organizations representing a number of Fargo high school students says the school district has taken back its original decision to deny the pupils the permission to form anti-abortion clubs.

Jocelyn Floyd is an attorney with the Chicago-based Thomas More Society. She says the Fargo school district is now allowing the students to start the clubs at North and Davies high schools.

The organization Floyd represents sent a letter to the district in early April arguing that the refusal of school officials to recognize the groups was a violation of the students’ First Amendment rights.

The school district has confirmed to KFGO-AM that it is letting the clubs gather but would not comment further.

The club at Davies High school already hosted its first meeting.
