Dont Touch The Baby Bump Pennsylvania Law Protects Pregnant Women

10.29.13 | Bob Price

Since there have been pregnant ladies, there have been people who randomly come up and start touching their bellies without warning, as if they’re at a petting zoo. Some women grin and bear it, others get assertive. Now, Pennsylvania has made it illegal to touch the belly of a pregnant woman without her permission. In fact, a man who did so in the keystone state has now been charged with harassment. Renee Ramp, who works with pregnant women at a local shelter, says there are all kinds of reasons why pregnant women don't want to be touched.
