At first, Rodriguez told an associate at the firm about the pregnancy. That associate then passed the information on to a founding member of the firm. Before long, the expectant mom found her pregnancy the subject of what could be perceived as an unusual line of questioning.

The young legal assistant was asked if she had experienced any problems with her pregnancy. Which is all well and good. After all, surely the firm deserved to know if the mom-to-be would need any time off for medical reasons, right? But then the questions became a little more personal.

Rodriguez’s employers asked whether she would be keeping the baby. A bizarre question, since abortions are rarely carried out after 21 weeks, and she was 36 weeks pregnant. Or maybe the firm thought the mom-to-be might give her child up for adoption, because they then asked if she was carrying the baby for someone else.
