Catholic School Teacher Fired Over Pregnancy

Catholic School Teacher Fired Over Pregnancy

Source: abc NEWS

An unmarried teacher at a Roman Catholic middle school in Montana has been fired after getting pregnant. 

Patrick Haggarty, the superintendent of Catholic schools for the Diocese of Helena, says Butte Central teacher Shaela Evenson "made a willful decision to violate the terms of her contract." He says the agreement requires that Evenson respect the moral and religious teachings of the Catholic Church in both her professional and personal life. 

Butte Central elementary and middle school principal Kerrie Hellyer tells The Montana Standard (http://bit.ly/1enCcQ0 ) that Haggarty dismissed Evenson on Jan. 10. 

Evenson taught sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade literature and physical education for just over eight years. A phone message left for her Tuesday wasn't immediately returned.

I see this as a non story.  People are fired every day from jobs for violation of contracts, agreements, policies, etc.  when you agree to a job, you should be held accountable and responsible for the actions you take.  She and the father or partner of the baby should have discussed this inevitability when deciding to get pregnant.

Hopefully she'll find another job. But, if not that's what welfare is there for..

Quoting Sisteract:

Hope she won't need to turn to welfare for lack of a job and HC benefits.

You don't seem to be reading what I said correctly. Read it again. I said "if that makes them look bad." Not that it does. Surely there are differing opinions on it. 

Please respond respectfully and I shall do them same.
