Today’s Lady News: Texas Teacher Fired For Unwed Pregnancy

  • Cathy Samford, a teacher and coach at a private Christian school in Rockwell, Texas, was fired for getting pregnant out of wedlock. Samford, who is 29, tells ABC News she is in a committed relationship and planning to get married this summer. But Heritage Christian Academy still didn’t think this slutty slut slut was a good “Christian role model” and fired her — even refusing to keep her on staff if she and her fiancé married sooner.
