Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

Rivals High - Pregnancy raises participation issue in Texas: "Should a pregnant girl be allowed to compete in high school sports?

And whose decision should it be anyway?

These questions and a whole lot more are playing out at Arlington Heights High School in Fort Worth, Texas.

Mackenzie McCollum, a 17-year old volleyball player, filed a Title IX complaint against the school earlier this fall - alleging she was discriminated against when the school learned she was pregnant."

Hat tip to Doc Quatermass.

Sounds like the plot of GLEE!

All other issues aside--and there are a lot of issues involved here--most obstetricians would not recommend strenuous physical activity for a pregnant woman, especially if she is far enough along to be showing.
