While pregnancy can be physically challenging, does it mean that pregnant women are not able-bodied? Pregnant actress Olivia Wilde caused a stir on twitter the other day when her tweet sparked that very debate.
Olivia tweeted: "NBD, able-bodied subway riders who wont give your seat to a GIANT preggo. I'll just stand riiiight next to your head and pray I go into labor."
While we do hope chivalry isn't dead, The Doctors don't love that the tweet makes it feel like pregnant people are disabled or handicapped. Also there are plenty of people riding with conditions that may not be obvious. Who is to say who has the right to a seat and who doesn't?
That said, being pregnant can be exhausting, uncomfortable and physically painful. Olivia does have a good point - it's common courtesy to offer a seat to a pregnant woman, one person on twitter definitely didn't feel the same way replying, "1. I didn't tell u to get pregnant 2. Get an uber (you can afford it) 3. I paid the same amount as you for the subway ride"
Update: Since taping, Olivia Wilde gave birth to her daughter Daisy.
What would you do on the train if you saw a pregnant woman?
