A pro-life Christian who was fired from Southwest Airlines for expressing her views won $5.1 million last week in a lawsuit against her former employer and workers union.

Breitbart reports Charlene Carter, of Texas, accused the Transportation Workers Union of America (TWU) Local 556 and Southwest Airlines of firing her in 2017 because she spoke out against the union spending members’ dues on pro-abortion activities.

“Today is a victory for freedom of speech and religious beliefs,” Carter told Fox Business on Friday. “I am so humbled and thankful for today’s decision and for everyone who’s supported me these past five years, including the National Right to Work Foundation.”

CBN News reports a federal district court in Dallas awarded the $5.1 million to Carter on Thursday, requiring $4.15 million from Southwest and $950,000 from the Transport Workers Union.

Southwest said it plans to appeal.
