He wrote a blog, “Dear Pro-Lifers: Can You Stop Being a Bunch of Weirdos?” on July 21: “Whatever group is out there trying to promote the pro-life message by handing out squish alien babies, stop. You’re doing more harm than good.”

Dina Butcher, a North Dakota resident who defines herself as a longtime pro-choice Republican, also blasted the group’s decision to distribute the toys in an op-ed in the Grand Forks Herald.

“Judging by the shaped plastic ‘fetuses’ that they threw to children watching the parade at the North Dakota State Fair,” she wrote, the anti-abortion activists “have definitely reached an all-time low in bad taste.”

In a statement to ABC News, Samantha Gordon, director of public affairs for NARAL Pro-Choice America, wrote, “Watching the anti-choice movement attempt to engage the public by using extreme and unsettling tactics is nothing new.”
