>> your hands to yourself. we have all seen this happen. a stranger walks up to a pregnant woman and without warning starts touching her belly. this happened to you.
>> it happened to me all the time. when a man comes up to you, it's a little creepy.
>> it's awkward and in pennsylvania, it is illegal it turns out. a law in that state prohibits people from touching a pregnant woman 's belly without her permission. doing so violates the state's harassment law. apparently it's a case interpreting the law and found in the case of this person in pennsylvania, they were harassing the woman by touching her on the belly.
>> repeatedly apparently. i think you have to ask permission.
>> so okay if it's a female, but a male --
>> a little weird.
>> like when i rub your belly in the morning.
