Legislation snarled in Congress would fill in gaps in the law to safeguard women on the job.

    Society doesn‘t need to encourage more poor women to have children. In our 21st century, post-Roe v. Wade age of choice, only married women with solidly professional careers, including generous leave policies, and well-paid husbands should even think about bringing a pregnancy to term. The Pregnant Workers Fairness Act would simply provide incentives for unambitious, unmarried women to get knocked up in order to be paid more for doing less while gaining legal grounds for costly lawsuits. The Obammunist recovery has been disastrously anemic as is. The last thing our economy needs is more regulations and lawsuits heaped on employers.
