Pennsylvania Law Bans Strangers From Touching Pregnant Bellies

by at . Comments

Strangers wanting to touch your belly is something almost every pregnant woman goes through. It's often awkward and always a bit of a social faux pas.

Now in the state of Pennsylvania, it's also against the law.

A man is facing harassment charges for doing just that, and Keystone State lawmakers felt so strongly about it that they passed legislation to prevent it.

Yes, it is now illegal for a stranger to touch a pregnant woman's stomach without consent. Crazy as that sounds, it will likely dissuade a few people.

That alone makes it a win, albeit a bit of an overreach.

Don't ask us why a person would go groping the stomach of someone they don't know. It's like George from Seinfeld and his "fabric feel" move. Only worse.

Apparently this is a bad enough trend that one state had to formally stop it, in any case. So quit rubbing cute baby bumps of people you don't know ... cute as they may be.

You tell us: Anti-pregnant belly touching law ...
