In a Louisiana public school, female students who are suspected of being pregnant are told that they must take a pregnancy test. Under school policy, those who are pregnant or refuse to take the test are kicked out and forced to undergo home schooling.
Welcome to Delhi Charter School, in Delhi, Louisiana, a school of 600 students that does not believe its female students have a right to education free from discrimination. According to its Student Pregnancy Policy, the school has a right to not only force testing upon girls, but to send them to a physician of the school administration’s choice. A positive test result, or failure to take the test at all, means administrators can forbid a girl from taking classes and force her to pursue a course of home study if she wishes to continue her education with the school.
This is in blatant violation of federal law and the U.S. Constitution.
This one goes out to all those people who think that just because discrimination is illegal and this kind of forced invasion of privacy is illegal, that it somehow doesn’t still happen fucking CONSTANTLY.
Eerily reminds me of the Salem witch trials except without the batshit crazy people with sticks and stones, looking for ways to strip the power of freedom from women.
For FUCK’S SAKE.
How is this even legal?
