West Virginia principal is apparently bonkers

Ahh, good ol' West Virginia: Charleston, WV student [Campbell] seeks injunction against principal [Aulenbacher] who threatened to call college where she'd been accepted after she spoke up against a high school "abstinence-only" assembly. The speaker at the assembly was apparently one Pam Stenzel.

"West Virginia has the ninth highest pregnancy rate in the U.S.," Campbell said. "I should be able to be informed in my school what birth control is and how I can get it. With the policy at GW, under George Aulenbacher, information about birth control and sex education has been suppressed. Our nurse wasn't allowed to talk about where you can get birth control for free in the city of Charleston."
