Trick or Treat Shocker: Have a Fetus Doll (VIDEO)

Trick or Treat Shocker: Have a Fetus Doll (VIDEO)

Parents in Loganville, GA, were appalled to discover tiny, lifelike dolls resembling 12-week-old fetuses in their children's holiday stashes. The dolls were distributed to children who attended the community's annual Halloween event by Joshua Edmonds, a minister and pro-life activist.

Although Edmonds insists he only gave the dolls to kids whose parents had granted him permission, Loganville resident John Ramsey begs to differ. He told WBTV that even in this largely pro-life community, many parents found Edmonds' "treats" to be an inappropriate and unwelcome surprise: "Almost everyone I've talked to is pro-life, but they just don't think this is the proper venue to stage something like that."

Years ago at a festival there was a pro-life display and there was a basket of 12wk old fetus dolls. My daughter was around 15mo. at the time. I let her take one. We talked about how that is the actual size of the baby when it's inside the money at that age. She nick-named him and we still have him almost 7 years later. It was great to have to compare when I was pregnant with her brother. For us it was a teaching tool to show the actual size of a baby and how early it develops inside the mother. I do however, disagree if children are given this without their parents or even offered. I don't know this man/ minister or what his intentions were, but I would like to think that they were misunderstood. If you actually look at the 12wk fetus it looks just like a tiny plastic baby doll. Which I can't imagine that many parents find disturbing.

I would be angry too if someone gave that to my child. There are better ways to get your message out to children.
