Today Good Morning America ran a clip from John Stossel's 20/20 special "You Can't Even Talk About It" in which he claims pregnant women shouldn't be protected by the law. Chris Cuomo wasn't having it.
For the special, which airs tonight at 10pm on ABC, Stossel talked to Carrie Lukas, who sometimes appears as a talking head on Fox News, and is pregnant with her third child. She said her pregnancy is costing her company money and, "If my employer decides they no longer want me as an employee then it should be their right to fire me." Stossel says anti-discrimination laws may actually lead to employers being hesitant to hire people in those protected groups. Anchor Chris Cuomo, who is also a lawyer, points out that his logic is absurd, and soon after Stossel starts explaining that all of our laws are created to help lawyers make money, Cuomo cuts him off for a commercial.
