I'm hardly an expert on Christian theology, but
(1) I don't think it's for courts to decide whether a pregnant teacher is a
good role model, it's for schools to decide.

With respect to David Bernstein's points, I don't understand the argument
that a pregnant woman teacher would be a "public negative role model."
Insofar as Christian doctrine teaches that we are all sinners and can at
best repent and ask for forgiveness, she would not be negative, she would
be positive. She would show how a sinner can be redeemed by repentance and
accepted by Christian people. Jesus did not point to Mary Magdalene as a
"negative role model." >>
