It's cheaper than sex education

Why do we need to place more focus on high schools in the atheism movement?  Because neither collegiates or adults have to put up with shit like this.

One Louisiana public school’s no-nonsense approach to preventing teen pregnancy is “in blatant violation of federal law and the U.S. Constitution,” the American Civil Liberties Union says.

According to Delhi Charter School policy, students “suspected” of being pregnant are required to take a pregnancy test. If the test proves positive, or if a student declines to take the test, she’ll no longer be permitted to take classes on campus and must either transfer to another school or begin a home school program.

Teen pregnancy?  Let’s make her life more difficult (and don’t forget to call it “help”).
