You read right! It is now illegal to touch a pregnant woman’s tummy without her permission – at least in Pennsylvania! When my husband emailed me this, I didn’t believe it was true. It started because a man continued to harass a woman by touching her stomach on a regular basis against her will . And now it’s against the law?! Wow!! SourceWhere was this law when I was pregnant with all three of my children? When I was pregnant with my 2nd child, me and another mom-to-be created Belly Etiquette. It was a T-shirt company and it was birthed because people kept touching my stomach! It irked me so much!
Honestly, I think making it against the law to touch a pregnant belly is a wee-bit extreme but it is frustrating none the less.
What do you think about this being a law? Do you think it will spread to other states?
I actually don’t think it will spread to other states, but it will be interesting to see how this unfolds. People should respect the belly for sure!
I still have more shirts in my inventory if you are pregnant and want to purchase any! I have large & extra-large for $10. Just email me at BernettaStyle@gmail.com
