A Texas mother said a haunted house she attended with her son for Halloween did not disclose it was operated by a church and featured images of abortion and suicide, KTRK-TV reported.
Linda Ybarra said she took her 14-year-old son to the "Hell House" attraction in Pasadena expecting to see "the usual Halloween things. You know, zombies and ghouls and goblins, that kind of thing."
Instead, she said, they were confronted with a graphic reenactment of an abortion being performed.
Pastor Lamont Melrose of Potters House Christian Fellowship Church in Pasadena said patrons are not allowed to leave Hell House early due to safety concerns.
He said the attraction's aim is to convince people to accept Jesus Christ as their savior.
Ybarra said her tickets did not specify that Hell House was religious in nature.
"You don't convert children like that -- tell them that they are going to hell and things like that," she said. "You just don't do that."
