INDIANAPOLIS -- An Indiana diocese is denying that it discriminated against a parochial school teacher who claims that she was fired for violating Roman Catholic doctrine by using in vitro fertilization to try to get pregnant.
The diocese denies that a church pastor ever told Herx she was a "grave, immoral sinner." It also says that she wasn't fired but that her contract simply wasn't renewed.
The diocese says any legal review of its doctrine would violate its religious rights.
Herx's attorney, Kathleen Delaney, and a spokesman for the diocese had no immediate comment.
