Online Controversy – Woman 8 Months Pregnant Lifting Weights – PICs


A California mom sparked an online firestorm when a picture of the bodybuilder lifting weights at 8 months pregnant were posted on Facebook.

Lea-Anne Ellison, 35, was just two weeks shy of her due date when a photo of her posing with a barbell over her head was posted to a group page on the social media site on Sunday.

“8 months pregnant with baby number 3 and CrossFit has been my sanity,” Ellison wrote in the caption. “I have been CrossFitting for 2 1/2 years and…strongly believe that pregnancy is not an illness, but a time to relish in your body’s capabilities to kick ass.”


But a slew of commenters posted angry greivances on the picture — which boasted more than 16,000 likes and almost 3,000 shares by Friday morning.

“This is actually sickening, I hope pregnant around the world do not do this kind of crap,” one woman wrote. “I am a crossfit enthusiast but I DO NOT recommend this at all.”

The person continued by claiming the image gives “people the wrong message that this is OKAY when it’s not!!!!”

I'm just tired of the lies and nonsense coming from the GOP, so this is my little contribution to combat the nonsense!
