Catholics allow boy on stage and ban girl

A pregnant high school senior at a Catholic high school in Montgomery, Alabama was told she could not walk across the stage to receive her diploma at graduation on Tuesday. The father of her child, also a senior, was allowed to do so.

Alysha Cosby walked across the stage, anyway. When all the other names had been called, she called her own name and made the walk, to the applause of her peers. Her mother and aunt were then "led" out by police.
