SAN DIEGO (KGTV/CNN) — A woman claims she was fired from her job at a San Diego college because she engaged in premarital sex and became pregnant, according to a lawsuit announced earlier this month.

KGTV reported that Teri James alleges her employer, San Diego Christian College in El Cajon, wrongfully terminated her. James hired high-profile attorney Gloria Allred to represent her in the case.

“The HR director indicated that she was not being fired because she was pregnant. Instead, she was being terminated because she had premarital sex,” said Allred.

Up until four months ago, James was a financial aid specialist at the school — until she said the university learned of her pregnancy.

“I feel like what San Diego Christian College did to me was hurtful and un-Christ like. I was unmarried, pregnant and they took away my livelihood,” said James, who is six months pregnant.
