Teacher sues Catholic schools following dismissal for artificial insemination

Catholic World News - December 29, 2011

A non-Catholic woman who served as a technology teacher at two Cincinnati Catholic schools has filed suit against her former employers.

Christa Dias, who is unmarried, was dismissed from her positions in 2010 after she became pregnant through artificial insemination.

“She has a right to her opinion, but she doesn’t have a right to violate her (employment) contract,” said Archdiocese of Cincinnati spokesman Dan Andriacco. In her contract, Dias agreed to “comply with and act consistently in accordance with the stated philosophy and teachings of the Roman Catholic Church and the policies and directives of the School and the Archdiocese.”
