A friend of mine recently raised the question of whether or not there should be a law against pregnant women smoking. Smoking can have some incredibly adverse effects on unborn children - here's a little laundry list of some of the things that can go wrong - and it's virtually never recommended that a pregnant mother should smoke, along the same vein that pregnant women shouldn't drink. Still, though, I'm not sure that an out-and-out ban is the answer. What's your opinion? Should there be laws against pregnant women smoking? Or would this go against certain civil liberties? At the very least I think it would be difficult to police.
