Minnesota Pub Allows Female Patrons to Order Pregnancy Test Along With Cold Brew
Now you can order a beer and get a pregnancy test all at the same location. Pub 500, a Mankato, Minn. bar located south of Minneapolis-St. Paul, has installed a new pregnancy test dispenser in the women’s restroom.
Before ordering a drink, women can access pregnancy tests for $3 with a credit or debit card.
Healthy Brains for Children, a locally-based nonprofit, created the machine in an effort to reduce alcohol-related birth defects. Pub 500 co-owner Tom Frederick told ABC News that all proceeds go directly to the organization.
“I don’t make a dime on the machine,” he said. “We just gave them wall space.” Pub 500 supports their dedication to reducing the number of children born with learning disabilities owing to prenatal alcohol exposure.
“It was another worthy cause,” he said.
