The key words here are reasonable accommodations. No one is asking for awards to be handed out or increases in pay; just the ability to continue to work while pregnant with some changes to protect the health and safety of both the woman and the fœtus. This should be absolutely incontrovertible for those who run around claiming to be pro-life! While pregnancy is in no way a disability, reasonable accommodation helps all involved and is generally low or no cost to the business. The business keeps an employee, the woman keeps her job and everyone is safer. It’s the decent thing to do. And for you commenting that she brought it on herself, no one gets pregnant in a vacuum. An alternative would be to dock the father’s wages to pay for accommodation or make up for her wages should she be forced to stay home. Finally, many pregnant women are not protected under the ADA or the PDA. Women working for businesses with fewer than 15 full time employees do not receive protection from these programs even if pregnancy was considered a disability.
