If she names a father who attends the school, he should receive the same punishment, subject to a DNA test if he wants one.

That's just feeding into the nutjob premise that it's okay for a school to do this anyway. And it could put the girls at great physical risk.

Besides, doing so can bring a series of unintended consequences.

Er, the title got cut off - probably too long. You might want to edit that.

Reminds me of stories I've heard about maquiladoras where the workers have to show their used tampons on a monthly basis to prove they're not pregnant, or be fired.

WTF is this supposed to do for anyone?

I need to point out that this story has been posted here before and the policy in question was changed. I am linking to the ACLU's website to provide the follow-up post, and posting the first two paragraphs of it below:

DELHI, Louisiana – A public charter school said today that it will eliminate a policy that required female students even suspected of being pregnant to submit to a pregnancy exam and forced them out of school if they refused or tested positive. Delhi Charter School President Albert Christman claimed that the policy was intended to protect students from ridicule and harassment. The school rescinded the policy after receiving a letter from the American Civil Liberties Union and the ACLU of Louisiana.

“Blaming the victim is never the appropriate response to misconduct,” said Marjorie Esman, executive director of the ACLU of Louisiana. “If students at Delhi are being harassed, the school’s responsibility is to protect them while ensuring their education. The problem lies with the harasser, not the victim, and it’s wrong for schools to kick students out for reasons that have nothing to do with their education.”

The ACLU did get the policy changed, and I ask that this Page be updated to reflect that.

Good on the ACLU. Thanks for the update.

Americans like to talk about (or be told about) Democracy but, when put to the test, usually find it to be an 'inconvenience.' We have opted instead for an authoritarian system disguised as a Democracy. We pay through the nose for an enormous joke-of-a-government, let it push us around, and then wonder how all those assholes got in there.
