Pregnant Women Get a Parking Break

Privileged Parking For Pregnant Moms

When I pulled into the Babies 'R' Us lot for the first time, I was pleasantly surprised by the designated "Parking for Expecting Moms" spots.

While I wasn't in dire need of the spaces, it made hauling a car seat, high chair, and loads of diapers to my car more convenient.

California Assemblyman Chuck Devore is hoping to make instances like this more common by giving pregnant women a temporary five-month disabled parking permit. To see how his proposal has been received,


While many moms are excited about the potential convenience, others aren't too thrilled. Helen Grieco from NOW (National Organization For Women) is opposed to the bill She said:

We've always been troubled by framing pregnancy as a disability.

The bill will be introduced on Monday in Irvine.

What do you think about the parking placards for pregnant women?
