Report: Schools lack programs for pregnant students


Students for Life of America saw the need and we reacted by starting the Pregnant On Campus Initiative. The mission of the initiative is to help student provide their peers with resources and support they need to stay in school while pregnant or parenting. The National Woman’s Law Center released a study that looked at what states provide for parenting students and noted the lack of resources –

“Despite enormous advances for women and girls in education since 1972, schools across the country continue to bar pregnant and parenting students from activities, kick them out of school, pressure them to attend alternative programs, and penalize them for pregnancy-related absences,” the report states.
