I agree Dave; turning that into some kind if ideological polemic is indeed a bit over the top!
I am not sure the recommendation defines women as anything , let alone baby incubators.
I suspect the logic goes something like this: (1) alcohol is bad for babies. (2) people often get pregnant without intending to and dont know they have done so for some time. (3) statistically around about 100% of those people are women. (4) If it is possible you are pregnant, better avoid alcohol.
Must you really try to turn that into some kind if ideological polemic ?
