Facebook Photo Of Pregnant Woman Lifting Weights Sparks Online Firestorm

facebook

A Los Angeles woman is causing a controversy after a photo of her weightlifting while eight months pregnant was posted on Facebook.

The popular CrossFit  exercise program posted the pic of 35 year old Lea Ann Ellison on Facebook earlier this week.

“8 months pregnant with baby number 3…strongly believe that pregnancy is not an illness, but a time to relish in your body’s capabilities to kick a**”,  the photo’s caption reads, quoting Ellison.

While the post has received more than 17,000 likes and has been shared thousands of times, several are questioning Ellison’s decision to continue her workout regimen this far into her pregnancy, saying she could be threatening the safety of her child.

Others, meanwhile, are giving Ellison support. And she appreciates those, saying, “I want to thank everyone for their kind and supportive responses! Haters will hate. My life is not their life, thank goodness!”
