And as a result of her pregnancy, her school, Heritage Academy (a Christian high school in Maryland), is "punishing" her by not allowing her to walk at graduation and also kicking her off student council.

Despite the fact that she attends a Christian school, she said she considered an abortion. The Christian school also told her that she will not be able to graduate next month, a punishment which she said was harsher than what other rule breakers have been given, Breitbart details. "And I never thought that I would consider it, but it was just the fear and what I've seen girls like me go through". "The best way to love her right now is to hold her accountable for her morality that began this situation".

Her father had served as school board president, but resigned due to how the school treated his daughter.

"I know at the end of the day that I made the right choice and in a couple of months I'll have this little sweet reward just to remind me that I did the right thing", Runkles told Crawford, after showing her a 9-week sonogram of her baby.

"I believe that every situation should be evaluated individually", principal Dave Hobbs told WTTG.

She feels she's being punished for choosing life. "That's just not fair to me", she said."By banning her and her alone, the administration and board collectively chose to make a public example of one student and has either intentionally or unintentionally communicated to the school community that pregnancy (not simply premarital sex) is a shame and should not be observed within our school community", Hawkins said.Pro-life group Students for Life of America has launched a campaign to try to convince Heritage Academy to change its decision on Runkles' situation.

After the school found out Maddi was pregnant, the school board, of which her father was a member, gathered to discuss Maddi's future at the school. "It's ruined her senior year".

In an earlier blog post, Students for Life said the academy's treatment of Runkles will be remembered by her classmates because it "wasn't with love". She said if the school stands by its decision, she intends to host her own ceremony.

The Heritage Academy in Hagerstown said Maddi Runkles violated the school's code of conduct by having premarital sex. While she has ample support from her family, her school, which claims to be pro-life, responded in a much less encouraging way.

The school officials eventually allowed her to finish her classes in school, but she was still prohibited from attending the graduation with her class. "It was embarrassing but I wanted my peers and my friends to hear it from me".

"Some pro-life people are against the killing of unborn babies, but they won't speak out in support of the girl who chooses to keep her baby", she told the New York Times.
