Pregnancy Tests to be Placed in Alaska’s Bars

Alaska is the state that has the highest rates of fetal alcohol syndrome in the country so they are introducing a new campaign of putting pregnancy test in bar bathrooms. It’s to prevent pregnant women from drinking.

Pregnancy dispensers, which are state funded, will be put in 20 bars and restaurants and the University of Alaska will study whether posters on the test dispensers are more effective than just hanging them on the wall. There will be a phone and online survey in exchange for prizes to get women to respond.

Women in Alaska of child bearing age are 20 per cent more likely to binge drink than any other state and the campaign is aimed at helping them discover unexpected pregnancies.
