According to an article in the British national newspaper, The Telegraph, “experts” are suggesting guidelines stating it’s best to abstain from alcohol while pregnant are alarmist, stigmatizing and sexist.
The article states, in part:
“Studies have shown that consistent heavy drinking during pregnancy can result in fetal alcohol syndrome, which can cause physical developmental and learning difficulties.
However, there is not robust evidence that light to moderate drinking, or even one-off episodes of binge drinking, causes any long-term damage.”
This virtue signalling over fake women’s issues is reckless. Britain has one of highest rates of fetal alcohol syndrome at 61.3 cases per 10,000 births while the global average is 15 out of 10,000.
It doesn’t take a genius to see the correlation that excessive drinking while pregnant causes serious birth defects.
Stats from the Canadian Centre for Addiction and Mental Health are pretty convincing of this fact as well.
Not only is this crazy, but it’s a slippery slope. What’s next? Saying it’s sexist to tell women not to do harmful drugs while pregnant?
If you can’t stay away from alcohol for nine months, maybe you shouldn’t be having babies.
