A law passed three months ago by President Biden could force employers to pay for employees to go on leave after they get an abortion.

The law, the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA), was designed to protect women who are pregnant from being discriminated against, but a left-wing advocacy group called the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) seems intent on exploiting the bill to protect women who get abortions as well as women who carry their child to term.

The memo penned by NWLC encourages women to ask for time off after they get an abortion as well as requesting that their schedules are modified so they may attend doctors appointments after and leading up to an abortion.

The organization has lobbied against religious protections before as it pertains to abortion and a series of other issues.

Religious advocacy groups have already expressed concern that religious organizations and employers would not be exempt from the law, as the federal government may still force religious organizations to violate their first amendment protected beliefs if they have a ‘compelling interest’ to do so.

Federal government agencies such as the Department of Education (DOE) have already started to provide leave for women who get abortions.

“Employers must provide “pregnant persons” with accommodations to procure and recover from abortions under the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA), a memo from the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) recently declared.

President Joe Biden signed H.R. 1065, the PWFA, in December 2022. National abortion organizations such as NARAL Pro-Choice America and Planned Parenthood advocated for the bill, as well as the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Prior to the bill’s passage, CatholicVote warned that PWFA could be used to force employers to pay for abortion-related expenses.

“I’m surprised some pro-life groups just didn’t seem to realize how this bill is going to impact their own operations,” said CatholicVote Director of Government Affairs Tom McClusky this week. “Under the bill, as the NWLC is now clearly stating, pro-life organizations can be sued if they don’t provide their employees special leave to get abortions.”

The NWLC, founded in 1972, is a legal advocacy group fighting for “gender justice – in the courts, in public policy, and in our society.” The website notes.”
