A group of anti-abortion students at a Manitoba university has filed a lawsuit after it says its club status was withdrawn by the school's students' union. The Brandon University Students for Life group says it is suing the Brandon University Students' Union to get its status back. The group says its club status was revoked last November because its stance made some students feel uncomfortable and intimidated. Nick Brown, president of the students' union, wouldn't comment on whether the group's status was removed or why. (Anastasia Pearse with the National Campus Life Network says there are 40 anti-abortion groups at Canadian universities and many others are facing free speech problems. She says clubs that have lost their status at Ryerson University, the University of Toronto Mississauga campus and the University of Ontario Institute of Technology have also filed lawsuits in the past year against their students' unions.)
