A controversy began when a pro-life pregnancy center posted a picture of a baby powder scented Yankee candle, and pro-abortionists took issue with it.

The Blaze reports that Stanton Healthcare, a crisis pregnancy center based in Ireland, shared a picture of the baby powder scented candle on their Facebook page with the caption: “Stanton Healthcare would recommend to all crisis pregnancy centre’s the new baby powder yankee candle. It just smells like a new born baby. #lovelife #lovebabies #protectthemboth #loveyankeecandles.”

The response from pro-abortionists was swift. “This is absolutely disgusting… Very insensitive to women considering all the centre have posted is about ’empowering’ women more like brainwashing. This operation needs shut down,” wrote one commenter.

“Disgracefully insensitive and shamefully distasteful advertising. What would the smell of baby powder do the help with a crisis pregnancy? Please remove this,” wrote another.

Although there was a lot of negative feedback on the photo, there were also a lot of positive comments.

“Stanton you are a brilliant hope for a progressive, compassionate society. Saving mothers and babies every day. The most fundamental human right is the right to life and you help uphold that human right. Thank you,” said a follower.

Yankee Candle has also issued a statement, saying, “Yankee Candle is not affiliated with Stanton Healthcare Belfast. We are currently addressing the issue."
