Public service announcement

I was driving through rural Delaware yesterday on my way home from the beach and saw not one, but two billboards warning women not to smoke while pregnant.  Do they really need to put out an all-points bulletin on that one??

  1. Yeah, you'd think by now EVERYONE would know that smoking is bad for at all times, not just when pregnant. Yet, a significant minority of people still smoke.

    Sadly, I think they probably do need this information. Nicotine is a powerful addiction, and unfortunately, not every woman who becomes pregnant is educated enough to muster the motivation to give it up. Maybe if an expecting mom learns something new from those billboards, it will give her the push she needs to quit.
