Girl, Planned Parenthood sticker stay at school
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.
