A business should not be forced to pay for maternity leave because pregnancies should be planned.

As a strong supporter of women's rights and planned pregnancies as well as being a small business owner, I believe that it's unfair for an employee to expect their employer to pay for their absence from work due to their pregnancy since the employee was initially hired to do a job and their absence from said job means they cannot carry out that performance. Accidental pregnancies should not an employer's burden. I believe the employee has an obligation to plan their pregnancy and work out an arr...

As excessive as the violence is, it isn't as violent as people make it out to be. For example, when Bruce Willis slashes the guy with the samurai sword, you don't see the contact. Then, when he thrusts it into the guy's leg, you hear the sound of it and it's below the frame. It's more about the consequences the characters face around these violent images as opposed to glorifying violence as a whole. Also, when Marsellus Wallace is being sodomized, you do not see any nudity and Bruce Willis comes...
