Being pregnant can certainly pose challenges to a lot of women, to the extent that a law professor is alleging that it should be considered a disability.
Associate law professor Jeannette Cox at the University of Dayton says that pregnancy should be qualified as a disability in the workplace, so that moms can receive equal protection under the Americans with Disabilities Act. Doing so would allow moms-to-be special provisions on the job, like light duty, drinking water on the job, more restroom breaks, and most importantly keeping their jobs.
"The goal there of course is to get pregnant women accommodations so they can continue working as they can hopefully up to the moment of birth," Cox told local Ohio news station WDTN.
