Shannon was pregnant! She was excited, although it wasn't planned.
She told her partner who said, “I thought you were on the pill.”
She told her parents who said, “Who’s going to pay for it? Don’t you realize how expensive a kid is?”
She told her girlfriend who said, “But you’re too young to have a baby. At your age you should be out enjoying yourself.”
She told her doctor who said, “Would you like an abortion?”
Shannon was pregnant. Somehow the joy of the unexpected occasion had gone down the gurgler.
