Bar installs pregnancy tests to help prevent FAS

MANKATO, Minn. -- A bar in Minnesota and a nonprofit are teaming up to prevent fetal alcohol syndrome.

Patrons can now find out if they're pregnant way before last call. The test is only $3.00. All you have to do is swipe your card then just grab it and take it to your stall.

Officials of the nonprofit Healthy Brains For Children say they're committed to preventing fetal alcohol syndrome and this is a serious message in what some would consider a comical place.

Opinions are mixed.

If the idea catches on, the nonprofit group wants to expand the machines beyond the bar.

The group says we could start seeing them in places like locker rooms, gas stations, and malls.
