A pro-life student group in Manitoba is suing a university's student union for stripping them of their official club status, a move the anti-abortion group says is "tainted with bias."

Brandon University Students for Life said they didn't learn Brandon University Student's Union (BUSU) had shut down their group until January this year, nearly three months after the organization decided to revoke their standing. Students for Life said the union disagrees with their stance on abortion, despite the fact they "aren't really interested in condemning people that have had abortions."

"We feel marginalized, censored and discriminated against by BUSU, simply because we want to host events, share our views and have discussions about life-and-death issues such as abortion and physician-assisted suicide," said Catherine Dubois, Students for Life's president, in her affidavit.
