Teacher Fired For Having Artificial Insemination

HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - Christa Dias, former technology coordinator at Holy Family and St. Lawrence Catholic schools in Cincinnati, Ohio, claims she was fired for becoming pregnant using artificial insemination, Cincinnati.com reports.

According to the report, the schools initially fired Dias for being pregnant while single, but then changed their reasoning to being pregnant from artificial insemination, which they claim violates Catholic teaching as well as her employment contract.

"I've always wanted to have a baby," Dias told the publication. "I've always known that. That's why I became a teacher, because I love kids. I didn't think it would be a problem."

Dias sued the schools for discrimination April, but the case has been put on hold while the U.S. Supreme Court considers a similar case. click here to read more
