Talk about a double-standard. In a new move, the media – abortion’s biggest fans – are supporting pregnancy in the name of “basic decency.”
The U.S. Supreme Court heard Young v. United Parcel Service (UPS) arguments on Dec. 3. For the case, former UPS employee Peggy Young argued her company violated the 1978 Pregnancy Discrimination Act by refusing her lighter duties while pregnant. Although UPS has since changed its policy, Young lost her job. In response, the media bashed UPS as a throwback to the “’Mad Men’ era” and called for “healthy pregnancies,” while organizations like NARAL Pro-Choice America hosted protests.
