Children out for traditional trick-or-treating on Halloween were planning for good candy as they went door to door, unfortunately they got more than they bargained for.
Children in all 50 states dressed up in their favorite Halloween customs and grabbed their candy bags and headed out for a night of fun. While Halloween is one of the most anticipated nights of the year for many children, some in one New Mexico town might be changing their line of thinking. According to KRQE News 13, anti-abortion propaganda, including pictures and cards, were handed out to children who were trick or treating. The images included a fetus with the phrase "I am not a clump of cells" and "53 million killed" written below it. Frank Valdez, a local resident from Albuquerque, New Mexico, spoke to KRQE News 13 and expressed his outrage after finding the pamphlets.
"We just noticed these cards attached to certain candies and started pulling them off, and we were pretty shocked to see that kind of stuff targeted at kids...They're forcing an agenda on little kids, pretty much."
New Mexico will be proposing an abortion ban on November 19, but the group behind the ban denies having anything to do with the anti-abortion propaganda handed out on Halloween.
