Growing Bellies, Growing Ad Space??

More and more women are selling space on their bodies to become billboards for companies while pregnant. While some may say that it's empowering and allows women to earn much needed cash for the new baby, others (myself among them) thinks it smacks of prostitution in a way... esp. since it doesn't seem to pay that much. (One woman made $1K, or perhaps $111 for each month of her pregnancy.)

One mom-to-be thinks that her child will be excited to learn they were part of a marketing campaign, and has started a scrap book to share with the kid in the future. "Oh boy, Mom, I helped advertise a casino for nine months-- And we were only paid a thousand dollars?!"
