In the UK it will be illegal for a pregnant mother to drink if that daughter with fetal syndrome wins her case against her mother.

Agree?

But last week there was an article that middle-class women drinking a bit of wine have healthier children as long as there is no excess and maybe it depends at what stage in pregnancy.

Nanny state?

I don't think a woman should smoke or drink when pregnant but how could it ever be enforced?? random blood tests?

The odd glass of wine is ok while pregnant, it's addiction that causes problems.

woah Polo, you skipped from "I don't think a woman should smoke or drink when pregnant" to "but how could it ever be enforced"

there is at least the sentence "and I also think it should be illegal" if not also: "because I have no problem in theory, with restricting the rights of a group I am not a member of, to the whimsy of my opinion" (although I did put a bit of sarcasm into that last one)

If I rewrote you're rhetoric but swapped in gay equal right (in a hypothetical world were gay marriage is as it should be: up to the individual) It would read like this;
Someone said :
I don't think a gay person should marry, but how could it ever bee enforced?? gender examination at the ceremony?

This sentence shows the speaker is someone who believes so naturally that their opinion should sway law, that they didn't even bother qualify the leap from what they think (that gays shouldn't marry), straight to issues of re-enforcement.

Bad example. Also given the OP I don't think it was really that necessary for Polo to spell out the illegal part.

I know many people would dearly love to reverse the negative impact giving women the vote has caused and indeed considering many countries including Ireland already dictates what a woman should do with her body. Sure why not? Let's also make it illegal for us to work and argue back.
