This is about the rights of mothers to have an adequate amount of time with their newborns. 14 weeks is just too short in my opinion and I think 26 weeks is better. I think parents do have the right priorities when they want to spend a decent amount of time with their children. If they are working two jobs, then they won;t have time to spend with their children and will miss the opportunity to bring them up decently and correctly.

I know heaps of people, especially from when I was growing up Lang, who made sacrifices, had two or more jobs, grew their own vegies and did'nt go to the pub etc every other night, smoking and playing the pokies, so they could bring up their kids decently and correctly.
There is a culture of "the State owes me" happening in all western countries. The pots are dry, and its time now to scrap the dole, and rediscover the "pioneer spirit".
I would scrap all personal income tax, and instead introduce a GST rate of 35% on all goods. People would soon find their true life priorities !

Wages are too low for people to solely rely on their own finances to bring up their children. And I think the year is relevant, because it signals progress from past eras.
If we do what you want, then only the rich or well off will be able to have children. A lot of people already forgo having children because they can't afford them or because they don't want to raise their children on benefits. It's just that this fact is not stated often in the media because it's hard to calculate.
