A middle school counselor heard a rumor that a student was pregnant, so he pulled her out of class and made her take a pregnancy test. Is this okay?
This story just made our blood boil.
Davis allegedly heard rumors that she was pregnant and wanted to know if it was true. Though she denied it and told Davis a classmate had spread rumors about her in the past, the counselor got a pregnancy test from the school nurse and told the 12-year-old to give a urine sample, the Pacific Justice Institute said. Outrageous!
And guess what? The pregnancy test was negative.
The girl was embarrassed and humiliated, and her parents were mad as hell when they found out. (We would be, too!) They worked with the Pacific Justice Institute to get an apology from the Nevada City School District, but didn't receive one.
The lawsuit seeks damages for violation of the girl's right to privacy and emotional distress.
What would you do if this happened to YOUR daughter?
