Students for Life is calling it "a victory for freedom of association."

The University of Arizona has recognized Students for Life as an official student group. ASUA initially denied its application in February because the group requires "members must agree to stand by the principles that life is sacred and that the intentional killing of human beings through abortion, euthanasia, and murder, and all forms of eugenics are morally reprehensible."

Student founder Jeremiah Lange brought in the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) for help. More details are in FIRE's press release.

The right of student groups to freely associate was just argued at the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday in Christian Legal Society v. Martinez.
