now everytime i get a seat on the local train, and there is a pregnant-looking lady standing, its such a dilemma – whether or not I should offer her my seat.
me: hi, are you pregnant? Can I offer you my seat?
she: no thanks. i am not pregnant. (thinking to herself: am i that fat)
me: Uh Oh! (sheepishly mutters) Sorry!
I wish all pregnant women would just say: Hi. I am pregnant. Give me the damn seat!
and relieve me of a guilt-ridden train ride.
and on the side the happy news is:
Woman has final right to have or not have kid: SC
New Delhi: In a judgment widening the scope of the right to life, the Supreme Court has held that forcible termination of pregnancy or denying a woman the choice to bear a child violates her fundamental right. Conversely, refusal by a woman to bear a child, too, is a fundamental right.
