Girl, Planned Par­ent­hood sticker stay at school

Waterloo Region Record - - World -

A Ro­man Catholic school in Con­necti­cut that told a stu­dent she would have to leave school if she kept a Planned Par­ent­hood sticker on her lap­top has re­versed course. The par­ents of Sa­cred Heart Green­wich sopho­more Kate Mur­ray said their daugh­ter will be al­lowed to stay at the all-girls school with the sticker in place. The school’s head said the school dis­cour­ages the dis­play of any­thing “sup­port­ing or op­pos­ing po­lit­i­cal can­di­dates, po­si­tions or or­ga­ni­za­tions” but would never dis­miss a stu­dent for what she be­lieves. The lo­cal bishop said he backed the de­ci­sion that af­firms the church’s anti-abor­tion teach­ings. The de­ci­sion drew fierce back­lash from alum­nae who threat­ened to stop do­nat­ing to the school and in­stead do­nate to the pro-abor­tion rights group.
