so, what you are saying is that you are trying to find a solution for those rich men out there who can support two households, cover the medical care
for the uninsured mother, and are prepared if by some fluke in nature she becomes completely bedridden halfway through her pregnacy and needs heavy
duty care herself just to make it though pregnacy.....okay,
what about the rest of the male population, ya know, the ones that would be struggling just to hold onto one household??
by the way, companies SHOULD pay for maternity, doesn't mean they do, especially if it's for a long period of time....and some occupations will pose
a problem for the baby the minute it's conceived and well, then it's advisable for the mother to get herself of the contaminated environment as soon
as possible. the women I'm thinkin of at the moment, well, there seemed to be a disagreement over weather or not the company could compensate for
the limitations by moving her to another job within the company. well, the chemicals in question permeated the whole plant. they compromised and
laid her off.... guess the moral of the story would be that ya, it would be nice if the mother got maternity leave when it's needed, but don't
count on it...
so, congratulations, you found the solution for a part of the population that could afford to maintain the mother's current lifestyle, the added
expense of the baby, as well as the expense of changing his lifestyle to suit the newborn. to be quite honest, if I was in a position where a man was
willing and able to do such a thing, I'd be more than happy to oblige him!!
but, well, I kind of get the impression that well, you want legal remedies, force the women to have the baby, on the basis that the father says he
wants it and will pay for it.....soon, people will notice that most men cannot take avantage of this option, since, well, this costs alot of money!!!
so, it will be we'll all do the best we can, and the gov't will help as much as they can. if the man can't afford the two households, well, at
least he's willing to allow her to stay at his. if the mother who's been waiting patiently for years for the opportunitiy to reenter the workforce
and is finally now finally getting established, all the while in what is really an unhappy relationship, well she can just unestablish herself a
little longer....and well, if she isn't insured, I guess she can just settle for a home birth and dad can deliver right??....I swear to God, if I
ever become pregnant again, my husband will be delivering the kid!!!lol!!!
ya know, I'd go for it if the man can and is definately willing to do his part. I'd even wouldn't mind helping those who need a little help if
the social service system was a little more fair and just. but, well, many can't, or won't.and quite frankly, when it comes to the father or has
six kids all from different women, who suddenly finds he wants this particular baby....I don't want to help!!! matter of fact, I would prefer the
mother just abort the baby, and well as an extra perk, if she's stupid enough to allow someone like that to impregnant her, well, I'll even happily
pitch in the extra cost of a tubal!!!
