You're right of course, they only give them the 60 days off to recover from having a bit of a sore vaj. It's not like there can be anything more important for someone who's just given birth to a baby to do during that time.

Haha, it's not like women are getting paid to go on a bloody vacation where they are picking up a child to take home, ready made like a roast chicken from the supermarket.

After my wife gave birth, she was in so much pain that I was the one doing everything for the baby, yet I didn't receive paternity leave from my job.

When did I ever say to do away with maternity leave? Oh yeah, never.

"Offer pay leave for other operations"

Pretty sure that would put it under the heading of "medical operations" rather than what it already is, maternity leave, stripping it of what it affords. So yeah, actually it is.

Don't argue semantics just for the hell of it. Giving birth is a medical procedure, thus I posited that employers give medical leave for other medical operations as well, which most of them already do.
