NEW YORK -- Pregnancy means forced sobriety because booze is bad for the baby, right? Despite how you answer that question, if a pregnant woman asks a bartender to "pour it up, pour it up" in the Big Apple -- the drink slinger is required to do just that.

New York City released new guidelines that are intended to protect pregnant women from discrimination, whether at a bar, a store or the office.

Along with alcohol, pregnant women also can't be denied raw fish at restaurants or entry into bars or clubs just because they're preggo, PIX 11 reports.

“I say if she wants to drink let her, she's an adult,” one New Yorker said. “She knows what she should and shouldn’t do and the bartender should tell a person what they can and cannot do.”
