United States is somewhat out of step with the world when it comes to maternity benefits (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parental_leave). Many believe this is fair - after all, no one is forcing anyone to have babies; if a woman choose to have one, she should have planned for it! Others, though, believe that bringing children into this world benefits the whole society, and should be rewarded accordingly.
What do you think it should be? Check all options you agree with - how many weeks you think should be guaranteed, how much of it should be paid, how much should a woman be paid, and who should pay it.
