School Forces Pregnancy Tests On Girls
This is interesting... A school is trying to force students to take pregnancy tests and exclude those who are pregnant Or Refuse
Delhi Charter School in Louisiana which has 600 students, says it "places high expectations" on its pupils. In its manual, the school states:
"If an administrator or teacher suspects a student is pregnant, a parent conference will be held. The school reserves the right to require any female student to take a pregnancy test to confirm whether or not the suspected student is in fact pregnant.
"If the test indications that the student is pregnant, the student will not be permitted to attend classes on the campus of Delhi Charter School.
"Any student who is suspected of being pregnant and who refuses to submit to a pregnancy test shall be treated as a pregnant student and will be offered home study opportunities.
"If home study opportunities are not acceptable, the student will be counselled to seek other educational opportunities."
Now, pro-rights campaigner the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has written a public letter to the school demanding the policy be removed immediately.
