Pro-abortion rally from Grove City, OH, via Wikimedia Commons.

According to KATU, the Portland City Council unanimously approved changes to the city’s bereavement leave policy in October to allow time off for employees experiencing pregnancy-related loss. That now includes abortions.

According to the document:

A qualifying pregnancy is defined as the pregnancy of the employee or employee’s spouse or partner; or any pregnancy, including through surrogacy or adoption, where the employee or employee’s spouse or partner would have been parent or primary caregiver.

“Miscarriage” is defined by the American Academy of Pediatrics as loss of pregnancy prior to 20 weeks gestation.

“Stillbirth” is defined by the American Academy of Pediatrics as loss of pregnancy from 20 weeks gestation or more.

“Other loss” is defined as any other loss of pregnancy including termination, irrespective of whether deemed medically necessary, and loss incurred during fertility treatment.

Townhall notes:

So termination — the sanitized term for abortion, the taking of an unborn life — whether due to medical advice or personal decision, is now a municipally recognized reason for bereavement.

They have been known to, but that’s because there’s something wrong in their brain, they’re missing the nurturing instinct. We’ve all heard about people that do not have that instinct and they murder or torture or rape their own or other children. Tragically that’s becoming all too common now. There’s nothing that delights Satan more than getting Man to destroy his own offspring and he is very busy doing that!

If this isn’t proof that sin makes you insane, I don’t know what does!

This makes no sense. The mother is _choosing_ to have an abortion. No matter what she says, she is not grieving.

WHY? They decided to kill their child. They shouldn’t get a thing other than the fact that they have committed the biggest sin EVER!

I agree with this to one point. They should get their Bereavement time in Jail, minimum time, 6 months.

God help us! This country has allowed this to go way too far for too long. Pray for revival of the human heart, and for the lives affected by this Pagan religion of murder in the name of progressive politics.
God is still on the throne, and Jesus still loves the little children.

Great! They can have leave to go party some more and get knocked up again! They should get a leave, 10 to 20 for murder.

Wowsa, what are they “bereaving”?
Is bereavement for a loss/death of someone close?!
They are such idiots-they are now ” proving” that abortion KILLS a close special PERSON!!!! Why else bereave?
Oh wait, they really just want a couple days off for the cramping and heavy bleeding to stop-its not bereavement at all. They just found a way around to get it paid.
May those who choose to murder a person, and those who allow/advocate for-may Gods judgement come swiftly!

This is a first step in coming to realize that abortion is murder.

In order to genuinely “bereave” you must feel something for the person you’re bereaving for, but a baby that they voluntarily killed by having it ripped out of their womb… I seriously doubt they’ll be bereaving for that baby! And if they are, then maybe they shouldn’t have had the abortion in the first place! For certain unscrupulous women, this will be used as another excuse to get out of working…

I thought abortion proponent said they were good things, so why the bereavement?
