A private member’s bill to give National Insurance Institute rights (including time off work to recuperate and other benefits) to women who miscarry from their 22nd, instead of 26th, week of pregnancy was on Sunday approved by the ministerial committee on legislation. The bill would equalize the rights of women who give birth to miscarried fetuses between the 22nd and 25th week and women who deliver after the 26th week.
