Did you find strangers came up to you during your pregnancy to touch your growing belly without invitation? I’ve heard many soon-to-be moms complain about this overstep in boundaries, but women in PA won’t be dealing with it much longer. A new Pennsylvania law has made it illegal for a stranger to touch an expectant mom’s pregnant belly. The law came about after one angry mom filed a harassment case against a man who repeatedly touched her belly despite her objections.
It is sad we would need a law telling us not to touch someone without permission. After all, we learned that rule in kindergarten, right?
