I was mildly offended by this balloon

We went to the fair last night, and the kids were getting stickers and balloons from all the vendors. Well i didn't pay attention, I was just trying to wrangle my way through the place without losing a kid or a hand. lol So when we got outside I noticed that the balloon had a smiley face, cool. Then I read it... and this is what it said:



I just stared at it with my mouth open for a few minutes. lol. I am very pro-choice..... and this for some reason rubbed me the wrong way. Usually I am THE most happy go lucky, live and let live person. Is it just me or is it borderline rude?

IF I had noticed it (I think my DH had them at that moment) I wouldn't have allowed them to have it. But since it was on their wrist, they were enjoying them, I bit my tongue, and didn't pop the damn things.

Quoting LucyHarper:

They are allowed to express their opinion, don't like their opinion, don't let your child have the balloon, not a big deal.

I don't find it appropriate to give to kids depending on their age.

They don't understand that stuff.

I would be annoyed by it also.

Well------------it IS the truth.  A fetus IS a future kid.  And if the mother had "chosen her freedom" or whatever, that fetus could also have been a kid enjoying the fair someday....

More gals should just adopt out the poor  baby if they do not want it.  Yes, it's hard I would think, but wouldn't it be easier than disposing of it? Like it was an animal one just put down?  It's human after all.  Just unformed completely yet.

sorry, but I am pro- give the kid a chance. MOST adopted kids go on to be happy they were born.

I agree.

The only reason I would have a problem with it was if my kids asked me what it meant. They are still little and don't need to know about things like abortion.

I think it's funny! But I can see how it can be offensive.
