I Drank While Pregnant

Listen, the Surgeon General can’t really greenlight drinking while pregnant or a bunch of morons will start binge drinking claiming the government says it’s okay. As I mentioned here, the concern lies with overindulgence, which is why the Surgeon General deems it best to take the “better safe than sorry” approach and avoid alcohol entirely when you’re pregnant. You can’t really blame ‘em. Tell ten women a bottle of beer is okay with dinner, and one idiot out of the bunch will swill a sixer. Every night. And then sue the government for misinformation.
Come give me The Business. Or save me from The Business I'm about to get from a lot of folks. It's what I'm babbling about today.
