The firing of a pregnant teacher at Marian High School in Bloomfield Hills is making headlines.
For nine years, Barb Webb taught chemistry and coached various teams at the all-girls Catholic school.
Webb is a lesbian. She married her wife, Kristen, two years ago. Earlier this year, they found out they were expecting a baby.
Barb Webb's firing has ignited an emotional response on social media.
Many Marian alumnae, parents and supporters spoke out in support of Webb on a Facebook page that has more than 4,000 members.
On other sites, however, there are those who believe Webb violated the teachings of the Catholic Church, and, as such, the Catholic private school was well within its rights to fire her.
