Brooklyn Teacher Fired Over 'Creepy' Pregnancy Remarks

(Max Rivlin-Nadler) A Brooklyn teacher is out of a job after allegedly making questionable comments about pregnancy while teaching science class.

Rigal Baptiste, 46, was fired from Franklin Delano Roosevelt High School after allegedly making comments like, "I hope you're using condoms," to a student after she walked into a classroom with her boyfriend.
