Positive pregnancy tests sold on Craigslist
By: Stephanie Guadian
EL PASO, Texas-- It's true-- you can buy and trade just about anything on Craigslist. In one ad, a man is looking to trade his collection of belly button lint. Another ad features a haunted 1960's coffee grinder for sell. But, a new item being sold on Craigslist is stirring up more than laughs. Expectant women are selling their positive pregnancy tests.
One ad from Dallas reads," I'm pregnant and selling positive pregnancy tests for $20." The seller promises to take the test the same day a buyer decides to pick it up. Adding, "I don't care what you use it for, not my business."
In another ad from Houston, the mom-to-be says, "Whatever you do with it is your choice, want that guy to marry you quicker, revenge or whatever."
El Paso resident Taylor Moss had never heard of the ads. "That's disgusting. It just shows that these women are trying to get a hold of these men for the wrong reason. It's not going to make them stay," said Moss.
A quick search on Craigslist didn't turn up any ads for the positive pregnancy tests in the Borderland. But, the trend is popping up all over the country. Supply and demand is putting the price between $20 and $30. "That's horrible. It's horrible for the people selling or buying. And tricking people? You can't trick anybody into loving you," said El Paso resident Michelle Delamotte.
One Craigslist user wanted to buy the positive pregnancy test to get back at her quote "cheating lying dog of a boyfriend." She wants the last laugh. But it's clear, not everyone thinks the practical joke is funny.
