Pennsylvania mommies-to-be no longer have to worry about unwanted belly rubs from strangers, thanks to a new state law.

Expectant moms in Pennsylvania now have the law on their side when it comes to combatting pesky belly rubbers.

It is now illegal in the state for strangers to touch the belly of a pregnant woman without her permission, reports KGO-TV. Support for the law came about after a woman filed a harassment charge against a Cumberland County man who rubbed her belly without asking her. Under the new law, touching a woman's stomach is now considered harassment.

Many people have sounded off about the new law on social media. Some agree with it while others feel it is a little excessive. Either way, mommies-to-be throughout the state have some added protection when it comes to their baby bellies.
