The big hot-button issue today - not being able to tell the difference between a woman who drinks one glass of wine in 9 months and a woman who drinks 5 glasses a day - is only an issue in the US, and really only came up about 20 years ago. Around that time, btw, it was also fatal to eat an egg, and they altered the USDA guidelines to tell people that for the best nutrition they should make 50% of their diet all carbs.
So why is it, as science and medicine go on, and we see that no, eggs aren't lethal, and yes, eating all those corn products is a horrible idea, people adapt, but they absolutely refuse to accept changes in other aspects, like the determination that women can drink alcohol and that in small amounts it's a good thing? Those aren't the only issues, either. Look at SIDS and the 10,000 contortions people will put their baby through based on nothing more than how old their personal edition of What to Expect is.
Science changes. Medicine changes. Why is it mothers and expectant mothers as a demographic are stubborn to the point of stupidity above and beyond all other groups?
