The group 40 Days for Life will be allowed to show an anti-abortion film at the Marathon County Public Library in Wausau.

The library director had previously cancelled the showing of the movie "BloodMoney". The director was concerned that people protesting the film would disrupt the library.

The group filed a federal lawsuit claiming censorship and suppression of free speech.

Marathon County leaders rescinded the library's cancellation, and agreed the group will be allowed to show the film at a public meeting room on Sunday.
