Bosses at one credit cooperative say workers will be punished if they stray from the strict “pregnancy planning schedule.”

    A lot of models in North America sign contracts stating that they will not become pregnant for the duration of their contracts. I feel this really isn't much different. Although sad in both cases.

    Why, in all of the articles about pregnancy recently, do all of the authors say "falling pregnant"? It's not an illness! There must be a better way to phrase it...becoming pregnant, perhaps?

    @ Laura.
    lol Good point. Coming down with a pregnancy, falling pregnant, being diagnosed with pregnancy.
    China does far worse than this, (to their people and to animals) but it's still ridiculous that they are trying to control employees from 'contracting a pregnancy.' When the women are allowed to, they have to "develop a birth plan". As if pregnancy and giving birth are things the woman can control!!! It just seems so archaic! Maybe they should then men getting the women pregnant on a "birth control plan".
