From Campus Reform:

The lawsuit, filed by attorney with the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), alleges that university officials refused to provide funds from mandatory student activity fees for an SFL event featuring a speaker who would discuss abortion and bodily rights, solely because they disagreed with its content.

“CSU played favorites while stifling free speech, a typical response of abortion advocates.”    

According to the lawsuit, the group applied for a “Diversity Grant” to fund the event in September 2016, describing it as an effort “to educate students on the differing perspectives surrounding the abortion argument and encourage students to take a stance on the issue.”
