Why didn't I think of this?

(Via STACLU), a Boston woman is suing Planned Parenthood and a pair of doctors because she gave birth to a human child. She had wanted to kill the inconvenient thing via an abortion, and, now that it's been born, she wants damages and child support for the rest of its natural life.

Silly me! I could have had gazillions of dollars from the birth control peoples for the failures of those systems I'd been using in my semi-reckless youth! Instead, I decided to go with what I figured was best for the kid -- putting her into an adoptive family, where she would get the attention and affection that this crazy woman couldn't provide.

It's just a crying shame this woman had to bring a new life into this world. After all, nobody could ever learn to love a little bitty thing like a baby, right? Nobody could possibly want to take in a stranger's kid, if she can't take care of it herself, right? Obviously, because she never wanted to have it, nobody else could possibly want it, either. It must be done away with, but, since that's out of the question, the doctors who didn't stop this tragic life from coming to fruition must pay.

The horror! She chose to abort her child for money (however they may want to phrase it, that's what it boils down to), but it didn't happen the way she planned:

[Jennifer] Raper claimed in the three-page medical malpractice suit that she found out she was pregnant in March 2004 and decided to have an abortion for financial reasons.

Dr. Allison Bryant, a physician working for Planned Parenthood at the time, performed the procedure on April 9, 2004, but it “was not done properly, causing the plaintiff to remain pregnant,” according to the complaint.

A woman should never be put into the situation where she is forced, even by accident, even temporarily, to live with the results of her own indiscretions. That would be positively Victorian! Obviously, this woman deserves to be given everything she wants because she was financially inconvenienced by the unexpected birth of her own child.

It's too bad I didn't go for the lawsuit thing. I'd never have to pay my gullibility tax again.

I'm going home to take a shower, now.
