Ohio fourth-grade teacher, Kathy Hart, has filed a federal suit against two teachers unions, saying that her compulsory union fees are used to promote abortion and homosexuality.
Catholic News Service reports that Ms Hart, who is Catholic, has been a teacher in the Ohio public school system since August 1996.
Hart sued the state's largest teachers union for forcing her to pay compulsory union dues that are used to fund union activities that she said violate her religious faith.
National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation attorneys are providing Hart with free legal aid and filed the suit in November in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio.
Hart is a teacher in the Coldwater Exempted Village School District.
Because the public school where she works is unionized, Hart works under a collective bargaining agreement that requires her to pay union dues to the National Education Association and its state and local affiliates - the Ohio Education Association and the Coldwater Teachers Organization.
