'what the hell?'

Bloomberg’s alleged response to another employee after she announced her pregnancy.2

Bloomberg and his company have a history of issues with discrimination and harassment, especially towards pregnant women. In 1997, a sales executive at Bloomberg LP sued Mike Bloomberg for allegedly saying “kill it” when she told him about her pregnancy.3 When he learned another employee was pregnant, he allegedly said to her “what the hell did you do a thing like that for?”4

In 2006, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission brought a lawsuit against his company, Bloomberg L.P., for discriminating against women after they became pregnant and took maternity leave. 5 A plaintiff in this case stated: “After I informed Bloomberg L.P. that I had become pregnant in September of 2004, almost immediately I began to suffer demotions, decreases in compensation and retaliation after I complained to human resources.”6

Pro-Abortion Legacy as Mayor

Required all NYC public hospitals to teach OB-GYN residents to commit abortions

“When I was elected mayor, one of the first things we did was make sure that all [public] city hospitals teach OB-GYN residents reproductive care, including how to… perform abortions.”7 Bloomberg began the program with the support of the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League.8 He also notes that this has been “an important part of my foundation’s focus.”9

Mega Donor to the Abortion Industry

'We are enormously grateful to Mayor Bloomberg'

Mike Bloomberg has used his foundations, his wealth, and his position as mayor to support the abortion industry. When the Susan G. Komen foundation decided not to renew funding for Planned Parenthood in February 2012, Bloomberg pledged a $250,000 matching gift to the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. The organization’s then-president Cecile Richards thanked him for his gift: “This contribution will help ensure that politics don’t interfere with women having access” to abortion 15. Bloomberg Philanthropies made a $50 million commitment to Family Planning 2020, joining the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the United Nations Population Fund in supporting the organization 16.

Bloomberg Philanthropies has a long record of supporting abortion under the guise of ‘reproductive care’ or maternal health. It enacted $50 million initiative to bring abortion to women in Nicaragua, Burkina Faso, Senegal and Uganda,17 and partnered with Planned Parenthood Global in 2014 to push abortion in developing countries18
