Are Pregnancies Ever Really Unplanned??

- By Bossip Staff

With all of the debate surrounding Planned Parenthood and the obvious right-wing attack on abortion, American women are being forced to reevaluate reproductive responsibility. Although a mere three percent of Planned Parenthood services can be attributed to abortions, the idea of terminating “unplanned” pregnancies is one to be reexamined.

Is getting pregnant after a one-night stand poor planning or a consequence of irresponsibility? After regular unprotected sex with your boyfriend, is it really a surprise to see a pregnancy test register positive? It would appear reproductive rights have become the remedy for poor decision-making.

Excluding the miniscule fraction of abortions performed as a result of rape and incest, the seeds are planted during consensual sex.

    Not getting pregnant is not that difficult. Unless you’re really unlucky (there is a percentage of women who will get pregnant even if they’re on the pill, and I hear that sometimes, condoms break), if BOTH you and your partner use protection (pill + condom) EVERY TIME. I repeat EVERY single TIME, you won’t have to deal with any drama.

    If you are not disciplined enough to protect yourself EVERY TIME, you’re asking for trouble.
    It’s. That. Simple. People need to quit acting like pregnancy just happens. This is not the 70s.

      I agree controlling your fetitility is not hard stop making your decision on momentarily things. I don’t have no children and never been pregnant and don’t want to have just anyone child either.

  • Uhm Well...

    I agree,its too many forms of birth control out there for one to “accidently” get preg.I have a friend who got preg last yr by a no good dude and got an abortion bc he was locked up and denying the baby.Mind you she already had a 1yr old;fast forward about 3mos later she was preg again and just had a baby a month ago.Most women ive known to abort have indeed had more than one or two,how are these girls so unlucky to keep getting preg with unwanted babies?Ugh.

    Uhm Well

    Why in this day n’ age are your friends usin’ ABORTION as a form birth control? This is the sorta’ irresponsible decision making/behavior that validates the religious right and pro-lifers stance against pro-choice abortions.

  • ~ChynaPeach~[Team Nymphis]

    The responsiblity lies on both the man and the woman. If he doesnt want kids maybe he should keep whats between his legs down on his own and she should keep her legs closed to anything but her hand. Simple.

  • Marquis de Sade


    GTFOH! You’re tryin’ to tell me that the “OVER” 70% of A.A. children bein’ born out of wedlock, that most was due to product failure or human error? The length some of you enablers will go to to absolve sistas from taking a more proactive approach in regards to their reproductive system. 😆

  • things happen

    I’m just going to share that my son is a product of failed birth control, the pill. I took it the same time everyday, but my beautiful baby here. I am married, but still I’m saying things can happen.

  • Prisoner2938(FormerlyNotReallyInterested)

    I would agree that not getting pregnant is relatively easy. But I would argue that most women who become pregnant wanted pregnancy anyways. They might not want a relationship with the father but these women want the child as a cash cow.

  • Dashiki Fawntaquita

    Birth control pills plus condoms works wonders who the hell have time for babies. I don’t get why those Hispanic women and those ghetto trash Shawniquas have one millions kids all under the age of nine.

  • Kenedy

    Having consensual sex…period, you are already asking for a > 0 % chance of getting pregnant. Period.

  • Amerika

    I’m married and we use condoms when I havent taken my bc……we are enjoying each other and we are being smart about ours sooooo I wondering why saquicia johnson has 7 kids…be smart people

  • Allie

    I am on birth control now, and have been using it for about a year, i was hesitant to use it at first, but my reasons for initially using it weren’t for sexual reasons, i guess it just depends on the person, i don’t want kids anyway so it was a good option

  • Keep it Real

    So you fill TWO abortions was healthier than a sponge or a diaphram? Interesting……

  • Dashiki Fawntaquita

    Who is this negro trying to sound smart in here? Why don’t you go date a white tramp and STFU its that easy duhhh. Smh “dark ages” with the unemployment numbers you idiots have to deal with lol

  • Nene87

    I hate the word abortion they tell you no one birth control is 100 percent. If you don’t want or don’t need to be pregnant don’t don’t don’t have sex. why have an abortion if God did not want you to have a baby he would have not let you got pregnant. I can not have an abortion you just never know who your killing you could be murdering the next president.

  • Nene87

    They tell you no one birth control is 100 percent. If you cant afford or should not be pregnant do not do not do not have sex. If God did not want you to be pregnant he would have made it impossible for you to be. Plus I couldnt have a abortion and kill the next president or person who just might find a cure for cancer.

  • Marquis de Sade

    So let me get this straight, you write these two mini novellas just to say that you’re the typical black woman who refuses to take any form of BIRTH CONTROL? ok. 😆

  • Nene87

    Uhm Well… You right I notice that too most girls who have one abortion go on to have others as if they didnt learn the first time.

      Lmao…I know right.. Sounds easy enough doesn’t it? Yet, so many people fail to do it…If one person (male/female) is against using protection, then that should tell you something…

  • Amber

    If you take birth control with out error,depending on the form than you are 99.9% safe from becoming pregnant.I had been on the pill since I was 15,after my husband and I married 3yrs ago we planned for a baby.I was 24.Almost 10yrs on the pill it only took me less than a month to concieve my son.So according to you I was infertile?After that I was on the implanon for about a yr before my husband and I wanted to try for another baby.Would you believe I got preg within 2mos off of the hormones?Clearly,I am not infertile.

    • I'm Just Me...Keeping It Real Since: 1983

      I asked if there was a study done. I asked a question. Maybe there is something wrong with the women I know. IDK. I just asked a question. I can’t take it anyway, so I don’t care. And I am entitled to not be for it for whatever reason I want. It it works for you Lady, then fine. Do you. I said I AM AGAINST IT. I didn’t say YOU or OTHER WOMEN should be against it. I am going to stick with what works for me, you should do the same.

  • Keep it Real


    This is the black myth that these black ghetto Phd’s promote. Do you really believe women around the would continue to use birth control if it made them infertile? What nonsense, so I guess that’s the reason black women have so many abortions. “shrugs”

    • Keep it Real


      around the world would…

  • Keep it Real

    There is not a 50/50 chance of getting pregnant if you’re on bc. Dumbazz

  • I'm Just Me...Keeping It Real Since: 1983

    Why don’t you mention abstinence as a means of birth control in your listing? Just wondering…

  • Keep it Real

    Sorry, but black women are in denial on the effectiveness of female contraceptives if used properly.

  • 223

    Let’s be honest a large portion of these women no the person their sleeping with doesn’t want kids but they force them as a means to trap I refuse to believe in this day n age people are making mistakes and this myth about birth control having a negative effect is garbage only in our community we call out of wedlock f*ck buddy kids gifts from god you either live by the book or you don’t

    • I'm Just Me...Keeping It Real Since: 1983

      Please don’t believe men don’t trap people off too. That is a one sided thought. I know 2 men who trapped off their females by lying about certain things because they wanted to use the kids to “keep the women in their lives.” It is sad whoever does it but PLEASE DON’T ACT LIKE IT IS JUST WOMEN!

  • 223

    Denial is exactly what it is
