Men, beware. Before you propose in order to ‘do the right thing’ after being presented with a positive pregnancy test, be sure that you take your intended to a doctor for a blood-based pregnancy test, and that you personally see the results. Or, at very least, buy a new pregnancy urine test, hand it to your girlfriend outside the bathroom door, and have her come out with that test in hand, to see the results. Because there is a new cottage industry of selling positive pregnancy tests online, in both Craigslist and eBay.
Says one such ad, “I have heard that positive pregnancy tests are in demand. I’m pregnant and don’t care what you need it for. I will supply the positive test.”
“Whatever your reason is for needing one, I do not care. But if you are in need of a positive pregnancy test I can provide one (or more) for you. I will purchase the test and provide the urine. Send an email with the quantity you need and I will provide a means of you making the $20 payment,” says another.
Of course, women trapping men into marriage, or leaving their wives, and other machinations, by claiming that they are pregnant (or actually getting pregnant) is nothing new. But this new ‘entrepreneurial’ slant is.
For men who have truly been trapped by pregnancy, we recommend Ms. Mitchell’s book, They’re Your Kids Too: The Single Father’s Guide to Defending Your Fatherhood in a Broken Family Law System.
