Of course the ACLU had a field day with this. The school quickly suspended this illegal disregard for student's rights. One thing I wonder if the authors of this rule considered is if they kick pregnant girls out of school than they are increasing the incentive for them to terminate their pregnancy. The same people who want to make teen pregnancy a scarlet letter usually also consider ending pregnancy to be tantamount to murder.
Yes and no. Some girls have been raped and can't help that they are pregnant. I think that no girl should be forced to take a pregnancy test. That is just a violation of privacy. I would understand if it was against the law to get pregnant underaged, but it's not. No school should turn someone down for being pregnant. That's discrimination... It should be up to the student or the parent of the student.
yes,you are saying absolutely right that its their parents and student decision that what exactly they want to do. But at this stage we also have to think that its school's prestige point that they should keep a distance from these type of incidents . [Syllabus of aipmt=http://funadvice.com/r/bu3960jr2ll]
I don't think it's so much as forcing a girl to take a pregnancy test as it is having that option available for her. I mean, Complicated can chime in at any moment. Either way I think you've made some solid points there.
If they force the girls to take pregnancy tests, then they should castrate the boys and men who made them pregnant as well, after all it takes two to get a girl pregnant, both should suffer the same surely?
No, that's ridiculous. Why should pregnant girls have to leave school? Some of them want to continue their education up until they're 9 months...
I believe that it should be able to hand out pregnancy tests , but defiantly not forced. Or kick them out for it.
I heard on the news that a state, I can't remember which one, but they were forceing girls to take the test
Where does the line between parent responsiblity and educational responsiblity get drawn ?
I'd like to see someone post the schools position/reasoning.....
Well, it's not texas that's for sure!
