Pregnant women will be allowed to jump to the front of queues
Expecting mothers in Israel will no longer need to wait in line at places that provide a public service.
(This is a excerpt, read more at )
A new law passed in Israel entitles pregnant women to skip to the front of the queue at public services like supermarkets and pharmacies. The Jerusalem Post reported the law will amend the Women's Equal Rights Act in Israel allowing women to skip exhausting queues at 'supermarkets, shops, pharmacies, the post office' and any place of public service. Yousef Jabareen, who represents The Joint List party, initiated the legislature, saying: 'I was abroad with my pregnant wife and when we saw long lines in public places but surprisingly we were told that we did not have to stand in line. 'When we came back to Israel we noticed the differences.' The law allows the service provider to ask for a medical certificate to women for proof of pregnancy.
According to BBC, the pregnant, elderly or disabled in Brazil are legally allowed to skip queues.
Is it a right or wrong thing, how do you think? Here visibly pregnant women as well as parents with small children are allowed to the front, and people give up their seats in public transport to them in most cases, though I'm not sure it's due to a law. Actually I was surprised to see some people's comments at the link against this. I can add that while the urban environment here isn't much wheel-friendly, a passer-by would almost always help a woman to bring the pram upstairs.
