They can, however, make up some lame excuse and fire her. (Like, she was sick too many mornings and missed work – morning sickness)
I know that I was looking for work when I was pregnant and absolutely could not get a job until I stopped mentioning that I was pregnant. It's just the way of things, I guess.
She could argue the point with Walmart, had she the resources (lawyer) to do so. They are likely banking on the fact that she does not. It sucks!!!!

I read the original post and I have to say that what Walmart did is
illegal. they are not allowed to release a worker due to pregnancy.
that is discrimination. if the job that she did was too physical they
are to find her a comparable job for the time of the pregnancy and
hold that job for up to one year under the family medical leave act
(flma). it shouldn't matter if she was part time or not either. I
would check into that. FLMA is federal.
