Many pregnancy loss families consider a subsequent pregnancy, one following a loss, to be called a “rainbow” pregnancy.
But loss families are the only ones.
Oreo is the latest company to use the rainbow in their corporate support of homosexuality and gay rights issues.
If you are a homosexual parent who’s experienced pregnancy loss and then a subsequent “rainbow” pregnancy, how do you feel about rainbows being depicted for homosexuality and/or for pregnancy loss? Do you align with one use over the other?
For heterosexual parents, is the use of the rainbow for purposes other than subsequent pregnancies, additionally hurtful, or isn’t it?
In general, how do you feel about the rainbow and its many uses?
(I wrote about my opinion in “She’s not my rainbow.”)
