This “Fetus Killing” Game Seems More Tacky Than Offensive

Some students from Hunter College are being investigated by school officials after a video surfaced of them playing a questionable game. In the video, two participants put balloons under their shirts (representative of a fetus) and try to pop the other’s “fetus” with a plastic utensil. It’s like cockfighting, but not deadly.

The objective actually sounds entertaining (and a good source of cardio), but what it’s meant to symbolize is rather awful. They should have just left the abortion aspect alone while creating the game and called it “Pop the Balloon” or something else harmless. Then again, according to PIX 11, people in the background could be heard saying, “Kill that baby,” so the game’s clearly just an insensitive way of treating a sensitive topic.

It’s hard to feel sorry for the student and their impending punishment when they put the damn thing on YouTube. Keep that shit offline, you dumb college kids. To be honest, “keep that shit offline” is an applicable piece of advice for anything a college kid does.
