xoJane: "We Aren't Paying You To Pee": Pregnancy and Workplace Discrimination

I just can’t handle the rampant hypocrisy of a nation where “life” is supposedly highly valued, while pregnant women, actual living children, and families are treated like garbage. For women who want to be pregnant, being able to announce a pregnancy must be really exciting, and the thought that you should conceal it to protect your job, or bend over backwards to accommodate your employer, is chilling. Pregnant women have a right to be in the workplace just like everyone else, and they have the right to accommodations to help them succeed in the workplace.
