Thanks, David3! I was going to post something similar but you got there first.
I was googling to find links to references and wound up skimming a bunch of threads and posts on pregnancy sites. I found no recommendations to avoid soy protein. Funny though, I didfind warnings about whey protein. Apparently it's not well absorbed by some expectant mothers. But it didn't seem to be a huge issue, and the overall opinion seemed to be if supplementing with protein powder, either will do.
There was one site where one front in the "soy wars" was fought. In the end the anti-soy folks were outed as Weston A Price shills. Which is kind of disturbing if you know the absolute nonsense WAP Foundation has gotten up to in the past. They actually advocated that women who fed their infants soy formula use an animal product instead. I forget the specifics, but whatever it was would not meet the child's nutritional needs.
I'd like to add a personal note. I get on the case of people who use kids as hostages in "emotional blackmail" "arguments" whether I agree with their POV or not. It bothers me either way, but it is especially offensive when used as a substitute for supporting facts in a bid to scare people into accepting pseudoscientific rantings straight out of viral emails and newstand tabloids.
