Where the fuck do you live because it isn't planet earth!
Just thinking the exact same thing. Beginning to wonder if we haven't got Harman in disguise trying to atone for the PIE crap that's landed on her.
Josho, you have hard line views of pregnant women escorting, fair enough, but you need to consider reality.
Low paid jobs are not abundant and even then they only return 60 quid (ish) for a 10 hour day, not much and not the ideal scenario for a heavily pregnant woman. One punter for half an hour and she's made the same money, after which she can have a nice sit down and rest.
Unless you qualify for a workplace maternity scheme, in which case all of this is a non issue, maternity 'leave' is worth fuck all.
As for your views on personal circumstances and the economy you're so far off it's borderline offensive.
Out of interest, after you had seen the one prossie, how did you cope ? Punting and your idealistic universe must have been one hell of a collision.
