A spe­cial edu­ca­tion teacher in New Hamp­shire was imme­di­ate­ly fired after it was revealed she had secret­ly tak­en a preg­nant stu­dent to an abor­tion clin­ic. The teacher had called in sick with food poi­son­ing, but instead drove the stu­dent to the med­ical facil­i­ty with­out parental knowledge.

When the teacher‚Äôs employ¬≠ers at the Region¬≠al Ser¬≠vices and Edu¬≠ca¬≠tion Cen¬≠ter Inc. non¬≠prof¬≠it dis¬≠cov¬≠ered her actions, she was placed on admin¬≠is¬≠tra¬≠tive leave and ulti¬≠mate¬≠ly terminated. 

Court doc¬≠u¬≠ments show the teacher told inves¬≠ti¬≠ga¬≠tors she had helped the stu¬≠dent ‚Äúdeter¬≠mine how far along they were‚ÄĚ and find a ‚Äúsafe‚ÄĚ place for the pro¬≠ce¬≠dure, also offer¬≠ing to accom¬≠pa¬≠ny the stu¬≠dent who ‚Äúdid¬≠n‚Äôt have any¬≠one to sup¬≠port them.‚ÄĚ

How¬≠ev¬≠er, the school accused the teacher of ‚Äúfail¬≠ing to prop¬≠er¬≠ly super¬≠vise and abide by eth¬≠i¬≠cal stan¬≠dards regard¬≠ing stu¬≠dent bound¬≠ary pro¬≠to¬≠cols.‚ÄĚ New Hamp¬≠shire‚Äôs Edu¬≠ca¬≠tion Com¬≠mis¬≠sion¬≠er had pre¬≠vi¬≠ous¬≠ly crit¬≠i¬≠cized such inci¬≠dents, ques¬≠tion¬≠ing whether edu¬≠ca¬≠tors should ‚Äúturn a blind eye‚ÄĚ when they alleged¬≠ly ‚Äútake a stu¬≠dent ‚Äď with¬≠out parental knowl¬≠edge ‚Äď to get an abortion.‚ÄĚ

While abor­tion is legal in New Hamp­shire, the teacher’s actions raised con­cerns about the appro­pri­ate role of edu­ca­tors in stu­dents’ per­son­al lives and repro­duc­tive choic­es. The inci­dent high­lights the com­plex eth­i­cal issues that can arise when teach­ers become involved in sen­si­tive issues out­side the classroom.

The sto­ry comes amid a nation­wide increase in abor­tions, with the US see­ing the high­est rate in a decade in 2023 despite bans in over a dozen states. The rise is large­ly attrib­uted to the grow­ing avail­abil­i­ty of med­ical abor­tions that can be ordered online.
