I'm just really sick of congratulating people on obviously accidental pregnancies. I know, I know, I'm evil. But whatever. I just feel that babies are best used as a compliment to a nice hollandaise.

Fact 2: 43% of unplanned babies are aborted in the US. The remaining 57%, even if conceived without a plan, are the result of an intentional choice by their parent(s) to keep them. So if someone announces that they are pregnant, they have made a choice. Be happy or at least supportive. It's new life.

Life is a beautiful thing. We (society) have been taught to congratulate people who choose to embark on that noble endeavor. Except the thing is that it's not always noble. Sometimes it's a sloppy accident that no one asked for. Sometimes the people who choose to procreate are dummies. That's just how it goes. So while you shouldn't feel obligated to congratulate them, you should wish them luck and hope for the best. After all, who knows what that kid is going to grow up to be

@OP, you say it with such disdain, yet 50% of all pregnancies in the US are unplanned (Source: Schriver report). There is a 50% chance you were the result of an accidental pregnancy. So suck it up buttercup. That's life. #factsoflife
