A Pregnant Woman Enters a Bar...

From the Chicago Tribune:

Michelle Lee was catching up with friends at a nightspot near her parents' home when a bouncer pulled her aside.

"Can I ask you a personal question?" Lee recalled him asking. "Are you pregnant?"

She responded yes because, at eight months along, it would have been difficult to argue otherwise, she said later.

Lee, 29, said the bouncer who was staffing the Coach House bar near Roselle didn't care that she was only drinking water.

She said he asked her to leave shortly after midnight Thursday, telling her the bar would be liable if anything happened to her. She complied, but grew angrier over the weekend, questioning whether she had been discriminated against as a pregnant woman.

Lee is considering suing.  Read more here.
