OTTAWA - Carleton University's student association's decision to join other campuses across the country in banning anti-abortion clubs has stirred legal jousting and prompted a national debate about free speech.

The Ottawa university's student association recently upheld its decision to yank funding from anti-abortion club Carleton Lifeline and revoke its club status at a constitutional board hearing.

That decision followed a public display by club members using graphic posters of bloodied fetuses that compared abortion to the Holocaust. The club's president and several of its members were arrested on trespassing charges during that demonstration in October.
