First off the government doesn't pay for all of it.... It is usually a 60/40 split between the employer and the government.

Second they do it to prompt a health society. When a family is poor and needs two incomes how can they raise a child... properly. Improperly raise children lead to more crime, higher divorce rates, more poverty, higher rates of depression, more obesity, and less education.

So yes.. more paid maternity leave works well. That`s why all those countries with the longest maternity leaves have constantly been ranked by the UN as being the best places to live.

Crabes-" shes creating a new TAXPAYER"

Or a new Welfare Recipient.

Crabes-"baby is not really a personal decision"

It's not? I must have missed the law that was passed that the Government would instruct you to generate a new `taxpayer`.

nubblins-"What`s so wrong with using tax dollars to INVEST in our future (aka children)??"

Having a child is a PERSONAL choice.

HolyGod-"Actually, It takes from everyone to give to everyone."

Damn, are you out of the loop. 47% of Americans pay no income taxes. Thus the other 53% are paying for the services for 47% who are not.

If no payed maternity leave discourages even a few women from having babies, the US has done the world a huge favor.
