12-year-old forced to take pregnancy test

Apparently Steve Davis has never heard of rumors. But obviously he is a fan of public humiliation.

Davis, a counselor at Seven Hills Middle School in Nevada City, Calif., pulled a 12-year-old girl out of class because he heard she was "pregnant." After telling Davis that it was just a rumor, the school authority decided to force the girl to take a pregnancy test from the school clinic.

The test was negative.

The Pacific Justice Institute is now representing the 12-year-old and is suing the school for damages and emotional distress.

Superintendent Roger Steel said that "there is no merit in the claim."

Why didn't Davis immediately contact the parents and tell them about the situation? If this girl was pregnant, her water wasn't going to be breaking anytime soon, so couldn't that test have waited for the privacy of her own home?

And why does a middle school have a clinic with pregnancy test? Is it really that bad in Nevada City?

I just wonder if Mr. Steve Davis has a daughter and what he would think if a school authority figure did what he did to her.
