  • Such is life. Depleted uranium munitions do more damage.
  • I think it's terrible. I used to refuse to sell cigarettes to pregnant women when I worked at a grocery store.
  • At least she's watching where she's going. Right?
  • basic ignorance regarding prenatal healthcare...... i understand that quiting smoking is tough but during pregnancy, it's got to go....i understand, first hand, but i just had to put them down~no question; it was hard but i had a sweet little reminder giving me the occasional "kick" if i started thinking about lighting up :)
  • That it's her body, her baby, her choice, and none of my business.
  • Too bad it's so easy to get pregnant.
  • Makes me sad for her baby. But at the same time it makes me glad that my kids had a much better start. She should think about all the chemicals she is feeding her baby! No good!
  • It makes me think that the woman, in principle, will probably not end up being a very good mother. Being a parent means putting your child's welfare and needs ahead of your own. Yes, quitting smoking is hard. So is giving up your social life, money, time, energy, sleep, and freedom in order to insure your child's welfare and upbringing. If she can't do the first one, doesn't seem likely she'll be comfortable doing the rest.
  • That they are very selfish and irresponsible for that little potential of a small person inside them.
  • I don't think anyone should smoke. That said, my mother smoked through two pregnancies and it seemed to have no ill effects on either me or my sister. So far, medical research has only been able to link low birth rate to smoking during pregnancy but logic tells us it can't be good for the developing child. Smoking around young children is probably equally if not more threatening to their health.
  • Well at that very moment, I wish I could remove that fetus kick her ass and then place the fetus back!!! after kicking some sence into her off course... =o)
  • I think "Marlboro Baby".
  • If they can’t even give up smoking for 9 months, how do they think they can be a good parent? The sacrifices required after the baby is born are much more difficult. And I also wonder about their intelligence. If they don't know by now the importance of not smoking AT ALL, let alone while pregnant or around young children.
  • I think I want to hit them in the head with a whiffle-ball bat. If I'm giving up coffee, dammit, you can give up the cancer sticks.
  • That she is a very silly woman who is either too ignoant to know the dangers or too stupid to care.
  • I think "Hmm, there's a pregnant woman smoking."
  • I think its a form of child abuse. Its more than just trashy.
  • It's not what I think. It's what I would do. I would slap it out of her hand and then slap her for hurting a baby like that.
  • STUPID IDOIT!
  • She's smoking for two
  • its her personal choice, so i dont think anything of it..
  • I would think "nice. she's already killing her baby and he hasn't even been born".
  • With all the literature out there today, the risks are well known. People who continue to smoke are selfish. The law should be changed to make these people accountable for this type of child abuse.
  • I think women who smoke during pregnancy are extreamly selfish as they are clearly thikning only of their own needs and wants and not of thier babies.
  • Trailer park trash sorry if I offend anyone it's an honest response.
  • Hard to answer this... Is she sexy?
  • I would think back to my wife smoking when she was pregnant with our son. And I would think about the warnings on the cig packs that warn about low-weight, premature babies. And I would think about how happy my wife was when she finally gave birth (10 days overdue) to an 8 pound, eight ounce baby. The joke in our house is that if she hadn't smoked, our son would have come out (in his own sweet time) with a full set of teeth and head of hair. And I would think about the anti-smoking fascists who think they have the right to stick their noses in somebody else's business.
  • definatley not a good look, Im a smoker, and if I got pregnant I would give up for the sake of my unborn baby, but If I did have a sneaky puff I wouldnt be were anyone could see me, I'd feel so guilty
  • Mr. Buddafreak- sounds like you think it's a joke and that the only thing smoking does to an unborn child is low birth weight. Educate yourself on the subject, you may be surprised. It may also affect your child down the road. By the way,child abuse is everybodys business. I quit cold turkey when I found out I was pregnant. I never did go back.
  • I think that it's incredibly selfish. I used to be a pretty heavy smoker (pack and a half a day), but I quit the moment I found out that I was pregnant. I can choose to smoke, but I wasn't going to make that choice for my son! All I could think of was his little home in my belly filled with smoke.
  • I think, "what the hell is wrong with that B*tch" Sorry, but thats the truth.
  • I praise pregant women who smoke.
  • It should be illegal because it harms a life.
  • It's not really any of my business.
  • I agree with Turkeygirl, I think its a form of child abuse. Its more than just trashy.
  • I think they must have a lot of issues and are ignorant of the harm they are doing to their baby.
  • I think they need to be locked inside an air-tight room and have it filled with the smoke from burning rubber, to see how they like having to breathe something disgusting without being able to escape.
  • child abuse. YOu cannot smoke in a car with a child under a certain age in some states or you can be arrested and lose your child and it should be a law for pregnant women too. They should lock them up and take away the cigarettes until after the baby is born and then there should be some major studying done to see if they are really fit parents.
  • I think they obviously care more about themselves and their habits than they do their unborn child's health!
