外国人の技能実習生が妊娠し、強制帰国や中絶を迫られる例が相次いでいる。受け入れ機関側から「恋愛禁止」や「妊娠したら罰金」と宣告されるケースもあり、専門家は「人権上問題だ」と指摘している。…西日本のある研修施設の規則には「異性との恋愛行為は一切禁止」「外出は2人以上の行動とし、単独行動はこれを一切禁止する」とあり、実習生に署名させている。「男性と女性はお互いの部屋を行き来しないこと」とも書かれている。研修施設での順守事項だが「企業実習に於(お)いてもほぼ同様の規則となるので今から三年間は気を緩めず厳守すること」とある。施設の元担当者は「会社は実習生を効率よく働かせたい。妊娠したら生産能力が落ちる。実習生に産休をとらせる会社など聞いたことがない」と理由を話す。
