Controversy at California School Over 'I Love Boobies' Bracelet

A breast cancer awareness bracelet is causing controversy at a California middle school.

Administrators say the campaign is a good idea, but the message on the jewelry is 'distracting.'

Sarah Garaci, a 13-year-old who has not taken off the bracelet since she got it, says she may soon be forced to because some boys are teasing girls about what's written on the bracelets - and teachers complain it's causing interruptions in class.

The bracelet reads "I love boobies. Keep a breast."

"There's bigger issues to deal with that are more important, and more threatening, than a bracelet," the girl's mom, Karen, tells Fox.

"I thought it was a fun message, and I thought it would get the awareness out in an easy way. Instead of saying, 'Look, breast cancer's going to kill you. Do your exams.' Here, 'I love boobies, let's save them' and make it approachable for her age group."
