Let's See What The Fetus-Worshippers Do On This Bill
This just arrived from my congresswoman, Marcia Fudge (D-11), about a bill she and some of her colleagues are introducing.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senators Robert Casey (D-PA) and Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) in the Senate, and Representatives Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), Jackie Speier (D-CA), Susan Davis (D-CA) and Marcia Fudge (D-OH) in the House, joined by the leaders of women’s advocacy organizations, unions, and business groups from across the nation, introduced critical legislation – the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act – to ensure that pregnant women are not forced out of jobs unnecessarily or denied reasonable job modifications that would allow them to continue working. Currently, pregnant working women around the country are being denied simple adjustments – permission to use a stool while working a cash register, or to carry a bottle of water to stay hydrated, or temporary reassignment to lighter duty tasks – that would keep them working and supporting their families while maintaining healthy pregnancies.
Gee, no fetus-loving GOP'ers wanted to co-sponsor? Oh, I guess they were just in the restroom when the call came. I'm SURE they can't want to force women to be pregnant against their will but then deny them the jobs they need to take care of their child. It just couldn't be, could it?
Her email contained a link to a letter sent by a coalition of supportive groups.
I skimmed them and noticed something odd.
I don't see any conservative groups, the very groups who claim to be SOOO concerned about the welfare of "unborn babies." I see the flaming liberals at the Unitarian Universalist Association are behind this, but I don't see the fetus-worshipping Southern Baptist Convention. Where do the think this "unborn baby" is being protected, if not inside the mother?
I will be very interested to see how quickly the GOP members of the House move to kill this bill and once again display their hypocrisy.
