Commented ACLU Women's Rights Project staff counsel Joan E Berlin: "The company did not give the women all the facts.. .the women did not give their informed consent No one should be faced with the ultimatum: your reproductive abilities or your Job. No employer has the right lo make you face that choice." Respectfully submitted, ■ Barring men from occupations that expose them to certain toxic substances could reduce birth de fects by an astonishing 83%, according to the Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration. OSHA's announcement is based on the statistic that cases of artificial Insemination currently produce 83% fewer birth defects than regular in- tsmination, because when sperm are ozea defective cells are killed. OSHA jfrddedlhat it does not make sense to femove fertile women from a dan- «erous workplace and leave behind trtile men who can Just as easily pass defects on to offspring.
