To see a pregnant woman, and I mean pregnant, smoke a cigarette. Shame on you lady. That poor unborn child does not deserve that. It should be a crime IMO.

So, that's what's really upsetting guys, just wanted to let the world know.

    Disgusting.
    1 thing I really hate seeing is animal cruelty.
    Obviously human cruelty is disgusting as well.

    But it really upsets when an animal gets mistreated, especially seriously mistreated.

    There was something in the uk about offering shopping vouchers to women to incentivise stopping smoking during pregnancy.

    Generally the women who smoke during pregnancy are scummy mummy's, that being said, I've seen plenty of people from a better social standing doing it too.

    Trying drugs is different? It's not wrong ?

    A female is advised not to smoke. It's not a legal requirement. If I advised you to not eat fruit cos it can cause issues would you listen to me?

    I think the point is that if you want to ruin your own life with things then that's fine, but when it's an unborn child then you should think twice. There are babies born that go through withdrawal because of the substances the mother has taken. Then the unseen damage that comes after.

    I know people who haven't smoked or had a drink through pregnancy and it still brings out issues with the kid. It's not just blamed on people smoking :joy:

    Yeah I get that. I think the letterhead saying "Knowledge is Power" makes it seem even more totalitarian.

    Of course...I know people who have smoked 40 a day and have lived past 90 so it's not always the case that bad things kill people.

    A child born with withdrawal symptoms due to drugs is dangerous and sad, but more importantly it can be avoided.

    I agree. I'm not saying that it's right for a woman to smoke during pregnancy. Just saying calling them scum of the earth for it isn't justified when there's multiple people out there doing much worse and people make out they are saviours

    I think you misunderstood me. I never said they were all scum of the earth. I said scummy mummy's, meaning that it is more likely that a certain type of person is likely to be seen doing this. Your Vicky Pollard type, if you've ever seen little Britain.

    If you want a laugh YouTube scummy mummy from balls of steel. It kind of makes the point.

    Crazy thing is, about half of the people in the U.S. probably wouldn't care.

    I am glad to see there are still people who care for unborn children.

    wow, are you actually trying drugs right now ? lol Are you telling me if you had a girlfriend who was pregnant you wouldn't mind her smoking

    Eh, me, and I'm sure a lot of the older guys on the forum, come from a time when everybody smoked and pregnant women smoked too. What surprises me is how casual people are about drinking while pregnant these days. I understand that a woman can have the occasional glass of wine and the kid will be fine, but that really seems like a slippery slope that should be avoided. Drinking can REALLY mess up a kid before they are born.

    Now you're stereotyping women who smoke while pregnant as someone like vicky pollard ? Little harsh

    Didn't say I wouldn't mind her doing it :joy:

    I was arguing the fact that everyone is free to do what they like. So why judge?

    Again wrong, I indicated in my original statement that I've seen people from all walks of life do it.

    The fact is that around town in the daytime, you are more likely to see a pregnant Vicky Pollard type smoking. That doesn't mean that I think that others don't do it.

    I agree with pregnant people smoking. Equally disturbing to me is seeing people smoke in their car with kids in it. Like it can't wait Til the kids are not around.

    Most likely to be a vicky pollard character. Is degrading all mothers who wear a tracksuit, are on benefits or seem like a chav ?

    Mert you rather was born with a silver spoon in your mouth or you've never lived on a council estate. As I have said before judging someone is the issue.
