Feminists for Life and New York Civil Liberties Union agree on something

They agree that Michelle McCusker shouldn't have been fired after getting pregnant from out-of-wedlock sex. Michelle was fired after she told her supervisors that she was pregnant since she is unmarried and her school's teacher handbook states that teachers "must convey the teachings of the Catholic faith by his or her words and actions."

McCusker and the NYCLU are suing the school for gender discrimination and Serrin Foster mentions McCusker when she addresses prolife groups.

" "It is not pro-life to take away the resources and support that women need and deserve to bring children into this world," Foster says. "The appropriate response for the employer when they found out she was pregnant, is to say, 'Congratulations,' and, 'How can I help?' "
