Tell the EEOC to leave abortion out of the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act!
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has put out a proposed regulation that would require employers to accommodate employees who choose to get abortions, such as by giving them leave to obtain one. The proposal misinterprets the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, which is a new law meant to help working mothers keep their job, if they wish, while protecting their health and that of their preborn children. The EEOC is now twisting that law to promote abortion instead, the exact opposite of pregnancy. But there is nothing fair about ending an innocent baby’s life, or about forcing employers to go along with it. 

In their comments, the USCCB and the Catholic University of America note, "The PWFA became law because of the willingness of members of Congress on both sides of the aisle to keep the bill focused on the wellbeing of pregnant women and their preborn children, rather than treading into the divisive area of abortion," and so, "the final regulations should not require an accommodation for abortion."

Join USCCB in telling the EEOC to leave abortion out of the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act!
