Transcription: 
Generally speaking the laws that provide protection for new parents do not make any distinction between mothers and fathers or between parents who have a biological child versus parents who adopt. The only exception to this rule is where laws provide for disability. So there are some laws that provide time off or benefits for women who are disabled due to pregnancy or related condition so those laws obviously would not protect, unless you're that one man who gives birth, or to people who have not biologically given birth to a child. So for example, you've adopted a child. You have a child in your home as a foster child or you've used a surrogate.
