Where Is the Mother?

I write in response to the article “The Mazel Tov Heard Round the World” (April 29, 2021). I recognize that advertising is the lifeblood of the newspaper industry. I also recognize that Americans have the freedom of speech but not the right to a megaphone. With that context, I’d discourage The Jewish Link from publishing articles about fertility and the joys of childbirth that intentionally mute the role of a wife in the fertility and childbearing process. The birth of a child is equally exciting for both the father and mother and publicizing and promoting the excitement of the father, to the intentional exclusion of the mother, in the name of modesty, is harmful to society. I know the publishers of The Link do not share this harmful view and I think this should be reflected in future publishing decisions.
