New Zealand creates abortion leave with commitment

The pay leave, which was approved by the New Zealand Parliament on Wednesday evening, will prevent women from going on sick leave. It can also be given to parents who want to have a child by car (rental vehicle).


Women who have an abortion or give birth in New Zealand, and their spouses, will be entitled to special three-day leave under a new law passed by the New Zealand Parliament. Labor MP Ginny Anderson explained that it refers to the death of a potential fetus during pregnancy (death in utero) or during childbirth (partial death) – miscarriages and stillbirths are subjects that are generally prohibited.

Rented for rent

“The grief that comes with a miscarriage is not a disease, it is a loss, it takes time to recover physically and mentally from such a loss,” he told parliament. He explained that only the woman who lost the child and her partner would not benefit from this leave. It can also be given to parents who want to have a child by car (rental vehicle). She explained that the law is part of a long legislative tradition that has made New Zealand a pioneer country for women’s rights.

Recognize the pain and sorrow of families

In 1893, New Zealand became the first country to grant women the right to vote. “If we are one of the first, we will not be the last. I hope other countries will begin to legislate for a fair and compassionate leave system that recognizes the pain and grief it brings. Miscarriage or the birth of an unborn child,” he said.
