Teen banned from graduation 'not because she is pregnant but because she was immoral' | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


Teen banned from graduation 'not because she is pregnant but because she was immoral'

A small Christian school in western Maryland is not backing down from its decision to ban a pregnant senior from walking at graduation next week.

Despite a public outcry and growing pressure from national antiabortion groups to reconsider, Heritage Academy in Hagerstown, Maryland, says that senior Maddi Runkles broke the school's rules by engaging in intimate sexual activity.

In a letter to parents Tuesday evening, school principal David Hobbs said that Runkles is being disciplined, "not because she is pregnant but because she was immoral. ... The best way to love her right now is to hold her accountable for her morality that began this situation."
