FIRE demands University of Idaho retract policy limiting faculty speech on abortion

FIRE Press Release
Foundation for Individual Rights in Expression

University administrators in Moscow, Idaho, are taking too many notes from the city’s Russian namesake. This mid-sized Idaho city is home to the University of Idaho, where implementation of a state law on abortion is chilling professors’ ability to speak on the topic.

Today, the Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression sent a letter to U of I officials warning that the university’s new policy regulating faculty speech about abortion is unconstitutional.
