What Donald Trump means by ‘paid family leave,’ and why pro-lifers should support it – Breakpoint

Unlike many Vermont Republicans, Pres. Donald Trump has spoken in favor of paid family leave. Pro-life commentator John Stonestreet of the Colson Family Center says the right paid family leave legislation – allowing families to borrow from future tax credits – would help create a pro-family, pro-life culture.

“Though women have abortions for a variety of reasons, there’s no question that, in certain cases, financial pressures play a role for many. We’ll have to take these pressures into account if we hope to build a culture of life. Paid family leave is a good place to start. According to current data about abortion, nearly half of women who have an abortion live below the federal poverty level. To put that in perspective, the federal poverty level for a family of two—say a husband and wife—is an income of $17,420 a year. In other words, many abortion-minded women feel they simply can’t afford to take unpaid time off from work.
