Archbishop Riordan High School students all showed how immature, obnoxious and rude they are.   





Archbishop Riordan High School, which is administered by the Society of Mary, hosted an all-school assembly Oct. 22 featuring pro-life speaker Megan Almon. 

Almon tours the country with the Life Training Institute, a Christian pro-life organization whose talks aim to “empower others with the knowledge and conviction necessary to make a case for life that changes hearts and minds.”

According to an account of the incident by the San Francisco Chronicle, students began to exit the auditorium and file into an adjacent gym about “five minutes” into the presentation, leaving “a few dozen of the school’s more than 800 students” in the auditorium for the entire talk. 

The walkout has since gained media attention after a video of the walkout went viral, with several hundred thousand views on TikTok. 

“My school tried to hold a pro-life assembly,” on-screen text on the video of a throng of masked students reads, “So we walked out.” 

The Chronicle interviewed several students who identified themselves as pro-choice and found the pro-life talk “frustrating,” especially, they said, Almon’s comparison of the number of babies killed in abortions to the number of Jews who died in the Holocaust.
