AOC Compares Childbirth to Dog Breeding In a Bizarre Pitch For Paid Maternity Leave

by pregnancy journalist
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez compared having children to breeding dogs in a bizarre pitch for longer paid maternity leave, claiming that society treats dogs and puppies better than human mothers and their babies. Now, if she were speaking on the treatment of puppies versus unborn human babies who are systematically poisoned and dismembered in thousands of abortion clinics across the country, I’d be inclined to agree with her. But that’s not the point she was making – or was, at least, trying to. “Do we know how long puppies are allowed to stay with their mothers after a dog has given […]

Boris Johnson: children of working class working mums more likely to mug you

by pregnancy journalist
Boris Johnson claimed that children of working mothers on lower incomes were “unloved and undisciplined” and more likely to become “hoodies” who would “mug you on the street corner”, it has been revealed. In his 2006 book Have I Got Views For You, Johnson also said that a growing tendency for women to work had seen women “socially gestapoed into the workplace”. Last month it was revealed that in a column in The Spectator, Johnson – who won’t even admit how many children by single mothers he is responsible for – described the children of single mothers as “ill-raised, ignorant, […]

Women Who Had Ectopic Pregnancy React to Ohio Anti-Abortion Bill

by pregnancy journalist
In this round of “look at all these politicians trying to control women’s bodies in dangerous ways,” GOP lawmakers have introduced an anti-abortion bill in the Ohio state legislature that would force doctors to attempt to “re-implant” an ectopic pregnancy, a pregnancy that grows outside the uterus, either in the fallopian tubes, ovaries, cervix, or abdominal cavity, into a patient’s uterus. (It’s also the leading cause of maternal mortality in the first trimester.) But, uh, hello: This state-mandated “procedure” is medically impossible. An ectopic pregnancy will never result in a live birth, and an embryo that implants outside the uterus […]

Your Guide to Plus-Size Maternity Clothes

by pregnancy journalist
You’ve written about buying plus-sized maternity clothes before, and I was hoping you had some updated information. I’m currently 6 weeks pregnant, and I don’t need full maternity clothes yet, but I’m already having to replace my bra. Taking my current one off every evening is an exercise in torture. And I was looking online for maternity clothes for people my size (to get an idea about what if available) and while there is more of a selection than the last time you did something on plus-size maternity, a lot of what is available is outside of my budget. I’m […]

Boris Johnson claimed children of working mothers ‘more likely to mug you’ | Politics | The Guardian

by pregnancy journalist
Boris Johnson made claims that children of working mothers in low-income families were “unloved and undisciplined” and more likely to “mug you on the street corner”, it has emerged. In a 2006 collection of journalism, entitled Have I Got Views for You, Johnson bemoaned the increasing tendency of women to work, saying they had been “socially gestapoed into the workplace”. “In the last 30 years an ever-growing proportion of British women have been ‘incentivised’ or socially gestapoed into the workplace, on what seems to me to be the dubious assumption that the harder a woman works the happier she will […]

Ohio Bill Orders Doctors to “Reimplant Ectopic Pregnancy,” Which Is Impossible

by pregnancy journalist
Doctors are warning that part of an anti-abortion bill introduced in the Ohio state legislature is medically impossible. Ohio passed a six-week abortion ban last year, but the law was blocked by a federal judge. More than 20 state representatives have since introduced House Bill 413, which bans abortion outright and defines a fertilized egg as an “unborn child.” The bill would require doctors to take “all possible steps to preserve the life” of an unborn child, including “attempting to reimplant an ectopic pregnancy into the woman’s uterus.” Doctors who do not perform the non-existent procedure would face charges of […]
