However, we could (at least in principle) prohibit it such that an infraction is not "criminal" but instead triggers putting the woman into treatment (if she needs it), gets more information, and possibly even monitoring (even men, when dealing with substance abuse, have a "buddy" that helps them, monitors them, etc).So if a woman has a glass of wine with her doctor's verbal okay, and she's caught committing this infraction, it's fine if this triggers a list of things that will be done to her, whether she agrees or not. What does "putting her into treatment" look like? What does monitoring look like?It'd be nice if we could get affordable, accessible treatment for addiction and abuse for the women who *want* to recover or are at real risk of FAS due to a pattern of regular drinking. Maybe we could do that first before targeting the pregnant woman having a glass of wine in public. Or anywhere that a nosy neighbor could see.*Of course, it's easier to go after her, than the problem drinker. *I guess anyone who is pregnant should also be careful about making their neighbors mad.cm,re-reading "The Handmaid's Tale"
