Unsuspecting kids and their parents were surprised to find life-sized fetal models called “The Precious One” and accompanying pamphlets in bags of candy given away at the North Dakota State Fair last weekend. According to the website that sells the models, “The Precious One is the most realistic fetal model ever developed. It’s beautiful detail, softness and weight can really move hearts and change minds!”
Even though we can’t understand what the possible motivation for giving rubber fetuses out to little kids is to begin with, is it appropriate? One mom doesn’t think so.
In an interview with Jezebel, she said,
“My kids can read. 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?”
