I definately don’t get worked up over someone who is pregnant by a guy that cheats on her and not financialy stable. I have been that girl before and she definately needs the support of these people right now. Hopefully she can get things straightened out before the baby comes,

@debwrb:  i am not sure why you are upset since you are “pregnant, married, and have adequate health insurance”

I don’t get worked up about it. I’ve seen many peoples lives changed for the better with the birth of their baby.  Maybe she’ll be one of them?

If anything, it makes me stop to appreciate my husband, family, and financial situation.

I’m employed, married and have adequate health insurance and am having a ridiculously difficult time getting pregnant so I tend to just view every baby as a miracle and move on.  I mean who doesn’t like a baby??

Um…not really. Why are you frustrated? 

Despite the fact that the girl isn’t married and the guy was cheating (which seems to suggest that the support is needed), and even though she might be on Medicaid and government assistance (why are you so sure of that?), it seems like a FB congratulations is perfectly normal for a pregnancy. What are you expecting people to say? “Wow, that’s a bad decision”/”Hope you’re not keeping it!”/”Sucks to be you”/”Abort! Abort!”/”Get a job!”??

I think an innocent child always pulls at someone’s heart, especially a newborn. I’m just curious to know how you know you will be paying for her children.

While I can understand feeling like perhaps this was not the most responsible choice for the expectant mother at this time in her life, I’m of the mindset that a child is a blessing and it is okay for someone to celebrate this news regardless of financial or marital status.  It doesn’t make your pregnancy any less special…just different.  Let her be happy and block her if it bugs you that much.

You’re in a far better position. Don’t worry about others too much. Sure, it’s annoying but it only makes her look silly.

@debwrb:  I think you’ll be better off worrying about your own pregnancy. It’s pretty presumptuous of you to assume that someone is using government assistance, and it’s ery shallow to resent that person for not doing it “right”. Furthermore, if this chick is such a waste of your news feed, why are you even friends with her on Facebook?

@debwrb:  I guess…But that’s a relatively large assumption to make from a pregnancy announcement on FB.

For my political taste, personally, I have much less of an issue paying for someone else’s child to be fed and educated and receive medical care than I do paying for wars.

I understand that thats how you feel, but you can’t say people have no shame. It takes a lot to suck up your pride and sit in a county office, I have been there and done that. But most people like me once upon a time, find themselves in a situation and try to make the best of it and do better. I have learned that you cannot judge in life, you never know what situation you might be in in life.
