Kids at the North Dakota State Fair parade got an extra goodie in their free candy bags: a life-size, squishy fetus toy according to MSN Now.
local anti-choice advocates slipped soft fetal models into kids’ candy bags without parental permission during the fair’s parade according the blog Jezebel.
The fetus dolls, pictured below, were distributed by the Minot, North Dakota, local Right to Life chapter.
“It was really disturbing watching children run around with them,” one fair goer recalled.
As The Inquisitr reported earlier, North Dakota’s controversial six-week abortion ban had been blocked by a federal judge earlier this month.
The law would ban abortions when a fetal heartbeat is detected.
The report continued on to say that in his ruling, Judge Hovland explained:
The federal judge went on to cite Roe v. Wade, a 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion until the fetus is able to live outside the womb. He explained that the North Dakota fetal heartbeat abortion law is “clearly an invalid and unconstitutional law” based on Roe v. Wade.
One mother, Amber Mendez, while “in the middle” when it comes to the topic of abortion states that she feels her rights as a parent where compromised at the parade.
“My kids can read,” she said. “I shouldn’t have to explain to five and six-year olds what abortion is at a family event. I doubt these people would be allowed to hand out condoms to little kids. But it’s okay to talk to them about abortion without my permission?”
Do you think the Minot, Right to Life group was out of line for handing out these fetus toys to children without parents’ permission?
