Dear Friend of America's Survival,
Phyllis Schlafly supported Donald J. Trump for president but she would NOT support his daughter's paid parental leave campaign. Phyllis Schlafly's daughter, Anne Schlafly Cori, Chairman of Eagle Forum, wrote an article under the headline, "Baby-Sitting Is Not a Job of Government." She writes:
The concept of taxpayer-paid family leave for newborn children is a misplaced understanding of who is responsible for the care of children. Children want and need their parents, not a nanny state, to look after them. Government welfare programs encourage the disintegration of the family because mothers look to government-money rather than father-money for the support of their children. Throwing more money at babies will not stabilize families. Paid family leave can undermine the family unit by diminishing the role of the provider in the home.
She adds: "Unfortunately, some of our friends in Congress have signed on to a taxpayer-paid family leave for six weeks that is promoted by the Trump Administration in the mistaken notion that Americans actually want the federal government to baby-sit their children."
