I am a Pregnant Student

PREGNANT ON CAMPUS INITIATIVE
www.pregnantoncampus.org
Phone (Students for Life of America): (540) 834-4600
Email: pregnancyresources@studentsforlife.org
Resources for pregnant and parenting students:www.pregnantoncampus.org/resources-for-students/
Title IX resources: www.pregnantoncampus.org/students-rights/
The Pregnant on Campus Initiative is a program facilitated by Students for Life of America (SFLA), a pro-life youth organization which assists over 1,200 pro-life student groups. Through this Initiative, pro-life student leaders support pregnant and parenting students, advertise helpful resources, and advance supportive projects on campus. Contact SFLA to find out if there is a pro-life group available on your campus for peer-to-peer support and for assistance accessing campus and local resources. Search the Pregnant on Campus website to find national and campus resources, helpful guides for pregnancy and student-related issues, and more.

COLLEGE STUDENTS

– Universities that receive federal funding must give pregnant and parenting students the same access to school programs and educational opportunities that other students have.
– If a student misses class due to pregnancy, childbirth, or other related conditions, the school must allow the student to make up the missed work and provide the appropriate information to complete assignments.
– If a doctor has deemed a student’s pregnancy-related absence as medically necessary (such as in the cases of bed rest, childbirth, or recovery), that student cannot be punished for missing class or another school activity (e.g. lose points for class attendance) regardless of the school’s or professor’s classroom absence policies.
– If a student misses class due to pregnancy and the professor gave out class points or extra credit, the professor must provide similar opportunities to the pregnant student.
Pregnant students must be provided with any special services that are also provided to students with temporary disabilities (such as at-home tutoring).
– If a student becomes pregnant and chooses to stay in school, the school cannot use the student’s pregnancy as a reason to terminate or reduce that student’s athletic, merit, or need-based scholarships.
– A pregnant student cannot be kicked out of campus housing while she is pregnant. She is allowed to remain in her current housing situation for the duration of her pregnancy (after which she may be asked to move to family-friendly housing).

PARENTING STUDENTS

Unfortunately, Title IX has very little specific guidelines for parenting students. Primarily, it protects parenting students from discrimination in educational access. Such items may include:

– Parenting students cannot be denied ability to apply for an educational program, financial aid, or scholarships that they would otherwise be eligible.
– Instructors cannot penalize a student because of his or her parenting status.
Special programs (e.g. study abroad, sports teams, clubs) cannot deny a parenting student for reason of his or her parenting status.
– Some schools do have policies regarding parenting students receiving an excused absence for emergency child care (e.g. sick child), and some schools provide a student parental leave policy (e.g. after childbirth).

Improvements can certainly be made to ensure better treatment and reasonable accommodations for parenting students. If you have a concern regarding conflicts with your parenting responsibilities and your classroom participation, talk to your professors, academic advisor, or other school admin/staff about these concerns.

HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

Yes! High school pregnant and parenting students are protected by Title IX. Here are some items that you should know if your school abides by Title IX (e.g. public schools):

– Teachers, administrators, and counselors cannot discourage your academic participation and advancement.
Examples: They can’t tell you that you need to drop out of school. They can’t tell you that you can’t go to college or that you will never succeed. They can’t discourage you from looking at college programs or applying.
– You cannot be kicked out of your school or your academic programs for reason of pregnancy or parenting status.
– You cannot be forced to enter into a separate program for pregnant or parenting students. It must be voluntary. Such programs must also be comparable in academic rigor and resources.
– You are allowed medically necessary absences from the classroom.
Examples: You are excused for childbirth and recovery. You are allowed to take breaks from class for lactation (i.e. to breastfeed or breast pump).

Rachel’s Vineyard weekends for healing after abortion are offered throughout the year in locations across the United States and Canada, with additional sites around the world. They also offer a 15-week support group model for Rachel’s Vineyard. The program is an opportunity to examine your abortion experience, identify the ways that the loss has impacted you in the past and present, and helps to acknowledge any unresolved feelings that many individuals struggle with after abortion. Because of the emotional numbness and secrecy that often surrounds an abortion experience, conflicting emotions both during and after the event may remain unresolved. These buried feelings can surface later and may be symptoms of post abortion trauma.
