Women's Rights vs. Babies' Rights

When I wrote that blog post the other day about the Indonesian Breastfeeding Law, it got me so interested in the issue of women's rights vs. babies' rights.  For the record, I do think that that law is a bad idea, but it's just interesting to me, and you can read the comments to see what I meant.  I don't have an answer, but I came across this article asking the question of whether or not bars and restaurants should refuse to serve pregnant women alcohol.  Again, I think that's a bad idea, but where do babies' rights start?

There's such a fine line between babies' rights and women's oppression.  I really don't have a solution and can't get my brain around the issue completely.  Where do babies' rights end and women's rights begin and vise versa?  The US clearly takes the women's rights side of things, although I honestly don't know the laws about late-term abortions (making them illegal would be a score for babies' rights).

So anyway, those are just some of my thoughts that I thought I'd get out there.  No big solutions, just something to think about.
