Fetus worship

The headline reads: Pregnant women urged to halve work hours. The study says that women that worked more than 32 hours a week in a high stress job gave birth to children with a lower birth rate. The Scientists recommend that women in high stress jobs shouldn't work more than 24 hours a week while pregnant.

Well that solves that problem doesn't it. Women who are pregnant should be organising their life around the pregnancy anyway, employers are very flexible about what hours people work, we have a generous welfare system that would make working less during pregnancy possible and there is extensive help for those women who work 24 hours raising other children during pregnancy, the only thing missing was a scientists recommendation.

  1. Damn right. The obtuseness of these people never fails to amaze me.
