So, which is it, a baby or a clump of cells? Most pro-choice people we’ve heard argue that a baby is just a clump of cells until it isn’t anymore. We’ve heard that no one is for abortion, and yet there’s also a group out there called Shout Your Abortion winning awards. On her short-lived TV show, comedian Michelle Wolf held a star-spangled salute to abortion.
In any case, Portland is now offering bereavement leave for birthing people who have an abortion.
Portland is now the first to offer bereavement leave for employees after they have an abortion. City Council unanimously approved the changes earlier this month.https://t.co/TbiysMjJG2

KATU News reports that under the new policy, employees are able to take off three days of work after an abortion or any type of pregnancy loss. Putting miscarriage and abortion in the same category seems a stretch, though.
If it isn’t a baby, what is are they bereaving?

That was my question. If in their mind its not a child, but a group of cells, what there to bereave?

If it’s just a medical procedure, why do they need bereavement?

But don't leftist women celebrate having it done? 🤔

The irony in this development is astonishing

I’m not sure if I should be infuriated or glad that they’re acknowledging a human being dies during an abortion.

It is an odd twist. Abortion celebrations were all the rage earlier this year.

I thought they had abortion parties?

Doesn't sound like something you'd need for removing an unwanted clump of cells.
Abortion kills babies and devastates moms. Heartbreaking.

We can honestly see the thinking behind this policy, but if you’re one of those women who celebrate abortion, do you still get the three days off, or are you back at work the next day because it was just a reproductive health procedure?
