In May 2019, a bipartisan group of legislators reintroduced the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (H.R. 2694) to help protect women from workplace discrimination. The bill, which is closely modeled after the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), would address legal ambiguities and help ensure that pregnant women are treated fairly on the job.
The Contemporary Testimony of the Christian Reformed Church beautifully states how life is sacred, stating, “Because it is a sacred trust, we treat all life with awe and respect, especially when it is most vulnerable.”
H.R. 2694 seeks to eliminate discrimination and promote women’s health and economic security by ensuring reasonable workplace accommodations. While carrying life in the womb, women can continue to provide for their family.
