PITTSBURGH - In Pennsylvania, pregnant women who don't want their pregnant bellies to be touched against their will have renewed reinforcement from the law.
The law is not new, it's been on the books for a while, but authorities have issued a renewed warning.
A case in Central, Pennsylvania made law enforcement renew its warning about not touching a pregnant belly against a woman's will.
"Essentially, someone had touched a pregnant woman's belly...that's very common that pregnant women have to go through that...the only problem is when you harass, annoy, alarm, in the act of touching, then it's a violation, a harassment charge," explained attorney Phil Dilucente.

"Especially if they don't' know her, or ask permission, it's kind of invasive," she said.
