WILMINGTON, Deleware, February 25, 2003 ( – A pro-abortion woman who was fired from her post as a teacher at a private Catholic school after her support for abortion was mentioned in a newspaper ad celebrating Roe v Wade, has launched a discrimination complaint. Michele Curay-Cramer, 31, claims her dismissal violated the Pregnancy Discrimination Act, which prohibits firing an employee for having an abortion.  Her attorney, Thomas S. Neuberger, believes the case will be a “slam-dunk”. He said, “There are no exemptions for religious institutions for sexual discrimination.”  The investigation into the matter could take up to six months after which a court case may be launched.  Anthony Picarello, vice president and general counsel for the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, a Washington, D.C.-based public-interest law firm representing the school, said “we will be defending the school vigorously.” He indicated that the school would not be intimidated by the legal tactics.  “The school is not going to change its mind,” he said.  See the News Journal coverage:   See related LifeSite coverage:  TEACHER AT CATHOLIC SCHOOL FIRED FOR PUBLIC SUPPORT OF ABORTION
