         Yes, I wonder how long we'll have to wait for pregnant women 
to begin suing their employers for not properly protecting them from 
real and alleged workplace hazards.  This sounds like
someone who wants to have his cake and eat it too.

         I remember such a suit in the 1970's that wound up before 
the Supreme Court.  Something about women working in a lead 
foundry.  I don't remember the details.
