14-year-old Ariana Iacono, a student at Clayton High School in North Carolina, has been suspended four times since September because of her nose piercing. The student belongs to the little-known Church of Body Modification. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) says this is a violation of the student’s constitutional right to freedom of religion, and is suing the school.
