Indiana teacher speaks out after being fired for having in vitro fertilization
FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- An Indiana teacher who said she was fired by the Fort-Wayne South Bend Diocese for having in vitro is speaking out!
On Friday, Emily Herx held a news conference in Indianapolis.
She lost her job at St. Vincent De Paul Catholic School in Fort Wayne last June.
The diocese said in a statement that Herx knew the rules.
But she claims she suffers from a medical condition that causes infertility.
Now, she's filed a lawsuit against the diocese.
"We're devastated. To lose- it was my career, I was so passionate about it and we were just blindsided. We are hoping that this makes a change," said Emily Herx.
Herx's lawyers said that the diocese has 60 days to respond to the lawsuit.
