Should pregnant women be allowed to play elite competitive sports?

  • Yes, pregnant women should have both the right and burden to make their own choices during pregnancy.

    Pregnant women are not simply wombs for unborn children. They still exist as humans who are entitled to make both good and bad decisions for themselves, and ultimately, for their children, born or unborn. We cannot legislate common sense, nor should we try to do so. There are many risks that pregnant women may encounter, and we must trust them to make their own best decision on behalf of themselves and their child.

  • Yes, they should.

    It is the woman's body and hers to do with as she chooses. If she wants to give herself a handicap and endanger her performance, ranking and public view, that is her own choice. Granted, if a woman is in the third trimester, then she should not be allowed as the exertion could induce early delivery and that brings up medical complications that effect the entire event.

  • Why would someone want to do that to their baby?

    This isn't an argument of "it's her body". Participating in sports could very well be detrimental to the baby's health. Is it really worth it to possibly ruin the child's health for life because a mother couldn't wait a few months to continue playing a sport? It's absolutely absurd that people are in support of this just because "it's her body".

  • No, playing elite competitive sports while pregnant seems like a possible dangerous situation for the women and child

    If a women has made the choice to be a mother it would seem that she would want to go out of her way to ensure the best possible optimal health for her child. It seems that placing her self in situations that increase the odds of serious injury to herself and the baby seems to contradict the idea of doing all things possible to have a healthy child.
