Some things just boggle the blogged mind! And when I read the news story about high school senior Alysha Cosby, who was banned by her Catholic high school from graduation because she was with child, I nearly fell over. No, it is not a good thing to get pregnant outside of wedlock, but unlike the vast majority of her peers, this courageous young lady chose life, and now a Catholic school is punishing her.

It gets worse. The father of the baby, also a senior at St. Jude Educational Institute, was allowed to participate in graduation. If you think something is wrong with this picture, you are right. How about getting in touch with // " target="_new">St. Jude's in Montgomery, Alabama, and letting them know you think their policy needs an overhaul.
