ACLU pushes to allow ‘boobies’ bracelet in Moffat Co.

CRAIG — A civil liberties group is demanding a northwestern Colorado school district remove its ban on students wearing breast cancer awareness bracelets that have the word “boobies” on them.

The American Civil Liberties Union said today it sent a letter to school administrators in Moffat County that said the ban violates students’ right to free speech.

The bracelets say “I (heart) Boobies! Keep a Breast!” The ACLU says the district banned the bracelets because some administrators found the word “boobies” offensive.

Moffat County school administrators didn’t immediately return a phone message seeking comment.

Last month, after the ACLU challenged a similar policy in Pennsylvania, a federal judge ruled the bracelets were not disruptive to the school environment and rescinded the ban until the matter could go to trial.
