Kentucky Church Day Care Center Fires Unmarried, Pregnant Woman
Cynthia Bundy has filed a discrimination complaint with the Kentucky Commission on Human Rights against the Fairdale Christian Church Day Care. The Commission heard Bundy's complaint that the Church violated her civil rights and the federal Pregnancy Discrimination Act when it fired her because she became pregnant and did not marry the father. Jeffery Stamper, an attorney for the church, commented, "She knew she would be terminated if she became pregnant and didn't marry the father. An unwed mother is not a good role model for children at a day care." The Commission is expected to rule within 60 days.
