Pro-Life Group Hands Out Squishy Realistic Fetus Dolls To Kids At A State Fair

Screen Shot 2013-07-26 at 6.07.02 AMI have been to many a state fair in my life, and I have usually only left with a Guns ‘N Roses mirror, a giant neon green stuffed monkey, and an unfortunate case of food poisoning. But these little ones who attended a state fair in North Dakota received bonus squishy fetuses from the Minot division of the Right To Life group. From ABC News:

“It was [given] out to show a visual that at 12 weeks, the baby is a baby. No abortion talk had to come of it with any children that picked one up. Young children just saw them as babies and that was it,” the group wrote on Facebook.

Minot Right to Life’s umbrella organization, North Dakota Right to Life, also had a booth at the fair. Devyn Nelson, executive director of the North Dakota Right to Life, told ABC News the booth was extremely popular, and that they handed out more than 800 toys before they ran out. He said he did not actively solicit people to hand out the toys, but would give them one if they stopped at the booth.

“The overwhelming majority of people that stop by are happy that we do it,” Nelson said.

The best part about these dolls, is that you can buy them BY THE CASE on the website for the company that manufactures them, where happy customers have posted reviews like:

Just in case pregnant women forget they are pregnant.

And I don’t know about you guys, but I think if someone tried to come to my door to hand me a fetus doll, I’ll probably go all crazy freakout lady in Apple store on them.

Jezebel wrote about this earlier in the week, and they spoke to a mom who has a kid who received the fetus doll:

Amber Mendez, a mother of three who attended Saturday’s parade, was likewise affected by the “Precious Ones” she found in the candy bags her kids got for free during the event. “They’re so lifelike,” she said in a phone interview. “I’m squeezing it. It’s fleshy.”

Mendez says she’s “in the middle” when it comes to abortion, but feels that her rights as a parent were compromised at the parade when her children were handed the fetuses along with informational pamphlets that included lines like “Week 1: conception; the baby is smaller than a grain of sugar, but the instructions are present for all that this person will ever become.”

“My kids can read,” she said. “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?”

And I think Amber pretty much sums it up perfectly, no one should talk to you kid about abortion without your permission. And I’ll add that no one should give your kid anything relating to sex and procreation without your permission. If you wanted to get your kid a squishy realistic fetus mode, you would get your kid a squishy realistic fetus model. I don’t know what my own daughter who plays with dolls would even do with this, because she would probably be all creeped out by it. She couldn’t make it a dress of of tissue paper and scraps of material like she does with her other dolls, and I have a feeling it would end up being eaten by her Calico Critter mice or something.
