Women’s Rights

Moms are Humans Too

ABORTION

  • Abortion should be a safe and legal option for all women
  • All women should have the right to make decisions about their reproductive health
  • Illegal abortions, are unsafe and usually end in death or other complications
  • Prohibited after 15 weeks of pregnancy, where it becomes risky
  • A fetus that cannot survive on it own outside of the mother  is not considered a person so it is not murder. The fetus is just an extension of the mother’s life.
  • Risks associated with abortion in the appropriate time is minimal.

MATERNITY LEAVE

  • There is paid sick and vacation days but maternity leave is not
  • Loss of income during maternity leave causes issues such as providing a safe home for the infant and feeding the infant.
  • Introduced requirement for maternity leave to be paid at least half of the salary  to decrease stress on new mothers and remove the deficit of income in households
