“Isn’t it my right to decide what I consume?”

“Dear PoPville,

I wonder if you or readers can help with a question. I am nearly 8 months pregnant, and last night my husband and I wanted to enjoy one of our last nights out for awhile by going to Columbia Station for jazz. When I ordered a glass of wine from the waitress, she informed me that it was against the establishment’s policy to serve pregnant women. I was shocked as this has never happened before when I’ve gone out – I’m not a big drinker, and obviously aware of medical advice, but a glass of wine here or there is not unheard of. Is this legal for CS to deny serving me? Isn’t it my right to decide what I consume?”
