8. That is a good point.

I suppose I might note, however, that pregnant women are somewhat uniquely vulnerable to being fired for their medical needs...employers who want to get rid of a woman who they know will be spending a bit of time out of the workplace in coming months may look for ways to fire her without breaking federal laws.

However, pregnant women are not the only people vulnerable to bosses looking for unethical but technically legal excuses to fire them, and you call attention to the reality that we should all be able to meet our own health needs without fear of losing our jobs.
