Report - 9 Out Of 10 Working Moms Oppose Separating Children From Their Parents
A new survey by Family Research Associates reveals that 91% of mothers in the workforce oppose separating children from their parents. The study comes on the heels of the recent immigration scandal where it was revealed that children were being separated from the adults who illegally crossed the American border with them.
Julie Wilson, a participant in the study tells her story. "I have been a career woman since college. After my daughter was born, I spent the normal 8 weeks at home with her, then she went to daycare where she will be until she starts school. So I understand what it means to be separated from your child. The difference is, I chose to do this. I made the choice to spend most of my life away from my daughter. I can't imagine someone forcing me to be separated from my girl. And to put in in perspective... my baby has not yet bonded to me. So there is no separation anxiety. It's just a different thing entirely."
The study showed that among those working women who have had abortions, the number who opposed the immigration policy of separating families for processing was slightly higher. Apparently, if you separate your own family for convenience, it is not as bad as separating families for legal compliance.
