This image was in the NYT:
Apparently, the US is one of only EIGHT countries in the world that does not give a paid maternity leave. What a disgrace.
I've argued with a lot of people on this blog (most recently on this post) who feel that having kids is a choice and ask why our country should do anything to support women who make this "choice". But I think a better question is:
Why is our country the only one who DOESN'T support women who have kids?
Well, except Liberia.
