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?

I'm telling you, so did I. I just stared for a minute or two with my jaw on the floor. LOL

That did make me gap in disbelief.

But then things like this happen, parents are busy.amd distracted, don't notice the balloon.

Now they're left possibly having to explain abortion to young children.

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.

Quoting CABZS:

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.

 It's not that big of a deal.

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

LOL

People were outside a Catholic church I passed yesterday, holding signs about abortion and pro-life etc. I'd never seen anything like that outside the Catholic church near my house. They were cheering and all. I don't see how it could do anything to sway someone from being pro-life. If anything, the intolerance would just piss people off.
