Louisiana School: No Pregnant Girls

A Louisiana public charter school is receiving the wrath of the ACLU after it was revealed they were demanding female students take pregnancy tests if they are suspected of being pregnant -- and forcing them to leave school if the tests came back positive. The ACLU sent a letter to the Delhi Charter School Monday calling the policy unconstitutional and “in clear violation of federal law.” The K-12 public school justifies its “student pregnancy policy” as a way to ensure students “exhibit acceptable character traits.”
