Pregnant Students' Rights Petition
Pregnant students are awarded rights under Title IX. These rights include not being penalized for late work or missing class for medical reasons, pregnant students cannot lose their scholarships or place on their sports team due to their pregnancy, and they have a right to reasonable accommodations like parking passes.
These rights are essential to empowering pregnant students to succeed. Unfortunately, many schools do not publicize or promote these rights on campus. Title IX is often mentioned in reference to disabilities and rarely for pregnant students. Congress must act to require college campuses that get federal funding are promoting and protecting pregnant students' rights.
Act now! Contact your legislator to ensure that pregnant students are treated with fairness and equality on campuses across this nation.
