LOUSIANIA: Christian Charter School Tests Girls For Pregnancy, Boots Knocked-Ups

A Louisiana Christian charter school forced girls to take pregnancy tests. Those who tested positively were expelled.

Delhi Charter School’s policy states the school seeks to maintain an environment where students will learn and exhibit acceptable character traits that govern language, gesture, physical actions and written words. “The school reserves the right to require any female student to take a pregnancy test to confirm whether or not the suspect student is in fact pregnant,” the policy reads. The policy also allows the school to refer the student to a physician of its choice. “If the test indicates that the student is pregnant, the student will not be permitted to attend classes on the campus of Delhi Charter School.”

Abortion must be the price of an education, right? After receiving a screaming letter from the ACLU, the school said today that it may change its expulsion policy upon the review of its board, but if any change comes it won’t be until the next school year. It’s not clear if the pregnancy tests will continue.
