I Think I Feel it Kicking

A friend of mine told me his wife was playing in a "moms" soccer league, meaning you had to be a mother to play. She is proposing that each participant be forced to submit to a uterus screening, because she thinks some teams are sneaking in childless ringers.

The funny thing is, for the purposes of the league, you are considered a "mother" if you are currently pregnant. Isn't that just waiting for a court challenge? Shouldn't the league rule be that you only become a "mother" at the time of viability? If you're considered a mother while you're pregnant, doesn't that imply that you have a child? If you have a freezer full of frozen embryos in your basement, does that count? And where is NARAL to ruin these women's fun?

Women's rec league soccer - ground zero for the abortion battle in the new milennium. Who knew?
