|Description||The panty-sniffing brigade has always taken a special interest in teenage girls, both for reasons exactly as icky as you'd imagine and because the social permission for all adults to exert control over and humiliate teenagers gives the sex cops cover. Whether they're trying to prevent a pregnancy, terminating a pregnancy, or going through with a pregnancy, teenagers often have to contend with a bunch of adults who take way too much interest in their sex lives. |
Now the ACLU is fighting a public school , Delhi Charter School in Louisiana, that is doing just that. The school has a formal policy banning pregnant students from attending the school, and they reserve the right to forcibly pregnancy-test any student. Here's the policy, in the school's own words:
If an administrator or teacher suspects a student is pregnant, a parent conference will be held. The school reserves the right to require any female student to take a pregnancy test to confirm whether or not the suspected student is in fact pregnant. The school further reserves the right to refer the suspected student to a physician of its choice. If the test indicates that the student is pregnant, the student will not be permitted to attend classes on the campus of Delhi Charter School.
