Not in a parallel universe: From the Taste page of today's WSJ
TEED OFF: A pro-life message equals a Nazi symbol? That's the reasoning of the principal of Abington Junior High School in Pennsylvania, who banned a T-shirt worn by one of his honor students. It read as follows: "Abortion is homicide. You will not silence my message. You will not mock my God. You will stop killing my generation. Rock for life." According to the Thomas More Law Center, the principal told the boy's mother that the message on her son's shirt was equivalent to a swastika, which he would also forbid. But after a letter from the center raising the possibility of legal action, the school has now agreed that the student "has a First Amendment right to wear the pro-life shirt."
