Pregnancy parking spaces

/ posted in: Current Events

I had been following Nio’s debate about pregnancy today so when I saw a news story about the possibility of letting pregnant women park in handicapped spaces it caught my eye.

I am against this idea because even as anti-pregnancy as I am I don’t think that pregnancy should be treated as a disease. It is a totally natural process – not a disability. Therefore, I don’t think it follows that they should be allowed to park in handicapped spots.

While looking around for a link to the story I found this site. I may need to revise my description of myself as an anti-pregnancy person. These people are viscious! Even on my nastiest day I’m not that vitriolic. Some of the comments did make me laugh though.
