Forgive my rant here but I saw a pregnant dirtbag standing outside her office building smoking yesterday. Blows me away. My fine city recently felt the need to outlaw smoking in any indoor public building. I'm ok with it, but I was ok before, don't go to a smoking bar if you don't like smoke. Don't work in a smoking establishment if it bothers you either.

It just really pisses me off when we vote in laws protecting those who don't need to be protected and this poor unborn child of a dirtbag wench gets all the firsthand smoke it can take. If I bought cigarettes for my 9 year old and let him smoke, guess where I'd be? This cretin walks down the street smoking, pregnant, piece of s%&t.

Sorry, I'm done now. :mad:

Pretty much everyone I know has a mother who smoked straight through her pregnancy. Even in the hospital when they were in labor. Oh, they drank too (well, not in the hospital). They all turned out fine.

I'd try being a little less judgemental. :)

Ken,
True, but the dangers of such behavior were not known then. Sorry to be judgmental, but dude come on. Can't condone it, won't condone it.

I saw Scotty2Hotty jam a pump into the spokes of a mother who had a helmetless kid in her trailer.

I'd never smoke a pregnant woman.

First of all where would you find paper big enough to roll them in? I suppose there might be a pipe large enough somewhere......

If there's a cult that builds a giant teapot, there must be one with a giant pipe.

If then was 1959, maybe I would agree with you.

But, I have a distinct memory of my taking a tour of the maternity floor of the hospital where my oldest daughter was to be born in 1989. At that time, smoking was not allowed in patient rooms, but was allowed in the floor's "smoking lounge." When we walked by there was a woman in labor smoking a cigarette, with an IV coming out of her arm and a monitor strapped to her middle. I did not know whether to scream or laugh at her. So, I did what I usually do -- I kept my mouth shut and stored the memory away for retelling at a later date.

BTW: Just so we can cut through the stereotypes of the type of woman who would have been doing this -- this was at a fairly upscale community hospital and although I did not know the woman, based on her age and looks, I would bet that she was both highly educated and affluent. But, she was stupid, nevertheless.

Lou Reed of Velvet Underground fame was said to say that quitting cigarettes was more difficult than quitting heroin--he still smokes cigs AFAIK.

Oh come on! We've already beat the discussion on the price of gas to death, can't we get up on our high horse about preganant women that are addicted to cigarettes?

Better yet, let's discuss how on earth a company that supplies the general public with a hazardous product that, when used as directed, will kill them has managed to survive at all.

Discuss.

Sadly, no test required to become a parent.

When I'm king, though, we're going to set standards. I did a column a couple of years ago about a woman who had TWO children with fetal alcohol syndrome, and drank a beer while I was interviewing her during her third pregnancy. Even then, people wrote to me telling me I had no right to judge her behavior. After my coronation, I plan to have her sterilized with dull tools.

And we're only talking about legal drugs here. Meth is becoming a huge problem in some areas and who knows what the hell that does to a baby long-term.

If you agree with his statement that everyone turned out fine, what really are the dangers of such behavior? Looking at the current generation, maybe it helps!

I'm staying up on this horse for a wee bit longer.

Sianne: Yeah let's blame the cigarette company, they made her smoke, please don't let anyone take credit for their own choices.

Mark: I wasn't stereotyping anyone, pregnant + smoking (drinking, drug using, etc) = dirtbag. Didn't say she was rich or poor. Could care less what she drives or where she lives.

Sorry to mislead you folks looking for preggo porn or smoking pregnant women.;)
