Waiter tells pregnant woman 'NO'

Posted by: 6PR | 11 July, 2012 - 5:33 PM
Strong debate surrounds the issue of drinking while pregnant.

A waiter in America has refused to serve alcohol to a pregnant woman despite the woman saying her OB had given the okay. Women and children advocate Melinda Tankard-Reist told Howard Sattler while the waiter had good intentions, it should be the woman's choice.

Blog comments Your Say

  • Actually, it's not just nine months.
    It takes a woman approximately two years to physically repair the process of gestation and birth of a child.
    Let alone the preparation which apparently, now-a-days, needs to be done beforehand: what you can and cannot eat and drink, the minerals and vitamins, where to go, while carrying the child in the womb.
    Buggered if I know how I've ever survived so long, but somewhere, I think ...
    Children don't "play" anymore and that they are old before they were ever young and new. Poor little programmed robots.
    It's sad.

  • While 6pr has played nanny in the debate of smoking and drinking, people have a free choice, more media should be debating floride in water, and the effects on all human life. It is banned in europe.
    Some of the subjects debated are trivial, start tackling big issues.

  • Well nurtured and healthy cows aren't we, women?
    Don't breed. In the end it's painful, boring and pointless.
    Buy a dog or cat, nurture that for its small years and grace.
    Never believe that you'll give birth to a perfect being.
    And, as for "love": love is duty, supposedly enduring, and never frivolous or self-serving, isn't it?
    When will men ever self-impregnant themselves and become so self-sacrificing that they will give up a paid day job to do "it" all as so many women do?
