Get Tested or Get Out: School Forces Pregnancy Tests on Girls, Kicks Out Students Who Refuse or Are Pregnant
In Louisiana, girls are being forced to take pregnancy tests, and being kicked out of school if they test positive or refused.
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 blatantly unconstitutional.
