The Australian Defence Force might be cracking down on soldiers’ ‘death art’.
But it does not have problem with providing maternity leave if you happen to kill your own child.
Or, in more politically-correct language, the Australian Defence Force will give you 14 weeks paid leave and then the rest of the year off as unpaid leave if you experience an event that results in pregnancy ending by termination.
But I’ll just highlight the key info for you below:
Just so you know, Defence policy also makes clear that this payment is separate and in addition to any payment that may be given out under the Commonwealth Government’s Paid Parental Leave Scheme.
It is more than a little sickening to know that a government department is willing to pay out thousands of dollars in leave entitlements to a person who aborts their own child.
However, I guess it is true to say that the new age and progressive Defence Force is still able to use taxpayer funds to kill…
(Apologies also to the many Defence members who do not and would not consider this to be appropriate).
