Bar Gets Pregnancy Test Vending Machine for Female Customers

Healthy Brains for Children, a non-profit organization in the Minneapolis, Minnesota area, wants to reduce the incidence of fetal alchohol syndrome. So it plans to put 100 vending machines in bars to sell pregnancy tests. The idea is that women who suspect that they may be pregnant can check before taking a drink and potentially harming a child’s development:

Pub 500 co-owner Tom Frederick told ABC News that all proceeds go directly to the organization.

“I don’t make a dime on the machine,” he said. “We just gave them wall space.” Pub 500 supports their dedication to reducing the number of children born with learning disabilities owing to prenatal alcohol exposure.

“It was another worthy cause,” he said.

A sign posted above the pregnancy test dispenser warns about the dangers of drinking while pregnant. “A pregnant mother should not be drinking, and there are many cases where she may not even know that she is pregnant,” it reads.
