BOSTON, Massachusetts (LifeSiteNews) — Boston city employees can get three months of paid leave if they abort their babies.
For the past two months, government employees have been able to get time off after an abortion, thanks to a parental leave change pushed by Michelle Wu, the newly-elected Mayor of Boston. Wu is being sworn in today.
The amendment passed in September “amends the current ordinance by applying the paid parental leave benefit to parents that have experienced a loss of pregnancy.”
“Passage of this ordinance would provide a paid parental leave benefit to city employees (parents) in the event of a natural birth by any method, adoption, surrogacy, and loss of pregnancy. Docket #0481 would also extend the paid parental leave to 12 weeks from six weeks,” the new policy says.
Wu first proposed including abortion under the “loss of pregnancy” standard in March of this year.
“The councilors are seeking to amend the language of the law to state ‘loss of pregnancy,’ thereby covering miscarriages, terminations, instances involving dilation and extraction, and other situations under the policy,” the Boston Globe reported in March.
Supporters of the change cited the devastating effects of miscarriage, which is unintentional, to justify the broader policy of abortion, which is the intentional killing of a baby.
“I think this makes us more equitable,” Councilwoman Lydia Edwards said in March.
“This makes us stronger as a city and acknowledging that there’s a loss of pregnancy [sic] and that a person may, they’re not required (to), but they may need to take leave in order to deal with that.”
The dangerous ideas of Critical Race Theory (CRT) are being forced on students in public schools around the country.
This is wrong and parents have had enough! It's time to join them in saying "STOP!" to this harmful and racist propaganda.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which says "No to CRT" in public schools, and "Yes to parents' right" to strongly protest CRT.
But, what is CRT anyway and why is it so dangerous?
Critical Race Theory is a hateful system of indoctrination which teaches that one race is either superior or inferior to another race, and that the United States is inherently racist.
CRT is dangerous and hateful precisely because it teaches children who are not white to despise and envy white children simply because of their skin color. And, as a result, it also teaches white children to despise themselves simply because of the color of their skin.
CRT also erroneously teaches that American society is inherently racist, and that different, detrimental policies (like reparations for slavery and race-based pay scales) should be imposed on the population to redistribute wealth from whites to non-whites.
This type of racist/marxist propaganda should have NO place in public, taxpayer-funded schools!
And, thankfully, American parents of EVERY COLOR are raising their voices and ballots against it!
Indeed, parents understand the destructive ramifications of CRT and, despite outrageous threats from Biden's Justice Department to prosecute them, they have been strongly protesting CRT at school board meetings across the country!
And now, in the first test of its kind, a candidate who was campaigning hard against CRT just won the governorship of Virginia in a huge upset victory.
That's great news, but we now need to contact every state legislature about this crucial educational issue.
And, we need to DEMAND that they BAN Critical Race Theory from every public school in their states - both primary and high schools, and colleges!
Whereas advocates of CRT seem more intent on vengence than on teaching children of every race to respect everybody, regardless of skin color, American parents of every race understand that it is not the color of one's skin that matters, but the content of one's character (to paraphrase Martin Luther King, Jr.).
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition asking all state legislatures to BAN Crititical Race Theory from public schools in their respective states.

Mayor Michelle Wu campaigned for her new position on a platform that included “gender-affirming” healthcare, which refers to supporting people who think they are “transgender.”
Her website boasts of her work to pass “legislation securing inclusive health care access for all City employees, prohibiting discrimination based on gender identity.”
The 2014 city ordinance “will allow city employees who identify as transgender to get full coverage for the costs of therapy and gender reassignment surgery under the city’s healthcare plan,” Boston Magazine reported.
“The gender identity non-discrimination ordinance will also ensure coverage for municipal employees’ dependents, expenses for transition-related operations, hormone therapy, gender-affirmation surgery, and other services,” the magazine reported in 2014.
“The fight for equality includes ensuring linguistically and culturally competent care, access to gender affirming services, and health policy that centers people with disabilities and chronic illnesses” Wu’s website says.
She also received the endorsement of abortion giant Planned Parenthood.
“The Mayor of Boston must be a vocal advocate for Planned Parenthood patients and reproductive health, rights, and freedom in the city and beyond,” Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund of Massachusetts wrote in its endorsement.
“Councilor Wu publicly championed and advocated for the ROE Act. She will use her platform as Mayor to speak out against attacks on abortion rights, push for proactive policies that advance health equity, and uplift the stories of Planned Parenthood patients,” the abortion business added.
