Illegal to touch a pregnant womans belly????

Pennsylvania has a new law making it illegal to touch a pregnant woman's belly without her permission. I wish they has this law in my state when I was pregnant.

Yes I am aware it has always been illegal. But sadly not everyone has the common sense that touching a pregnant woman's belly falls under assault.


Sorry I can't make it clicky.

Uh yeah, I'd say any unlawful touching of ANY person is called:


Assault.

That what I say every time some one tried touch me and I swatted their hand away. They always say you can't do that, that's assault. No dumbass its self defence it was you who assaulted me.

I got tired of being groped by strange men when I was riding the subway.

It's illegal in every state. Any unwanted touching is assault. Sad that they had to make a separate law just to clarify.

Good it should be a law. I did not want anyone besides family and friends touching my belly.

I know right. It should be common sense, that you just don't go up to hormonal pregnant women you don't know and touch them. Too bad its not.
