An anti-abortion group is back protesting outside Wake County high schools today.
The Raleigh Police Department gave a permit for a group called Respect Life to picket today across the street from Athens Drive High School. Police informed Athens Drive administrators, who notified parents and students ahead of time so they wouldn't be surprised to see the protesters today.
"Mr. (Principal William) Crockett emphasizes that this is not school related and will not interrupt activities at the school," flashed across the screen during Thursday's Athens TV News broadcast. "Those who drive to school will want to be extra careful not to be distracted while driving."
Similar protests have been held outside high schools across the school district.
