A Jacksonville, Florida woman says she does not care how people use the positive pregnancy tests that she sells on Craigslist.
Six months pregnant, the woman has been selling her urine and positive pregnancy tests for $30 each online, and has had a number of customers, according to The Blaze.
Her ad said:
“Very self explanatory I am 6 months and I am providing a product in which the consumer is able to purchase positive pregnancy tests or urine for your own use. Whether you are using it for your own amusement such as a prank, or to blackmail the ceo of apple who you are having an affair with I DON’T CARE AT ALL this is an absolutely no questions asked type of deal tell me what you need I provide it for monetary exchange. I will not overcharge for the urine test but I will not be low balled either do not contact me if you are going to be cheap and difficult”
When reporters with WJAX-TV in Jacksonville noticed her ad, they decided to investigate. After conducting an undercover investigation with the woman, the journalists revealed who they were, and the woman agreed to an interview.
Here’s more from the Blaze:
Although she explicitly states otherwise in her Craigslist ad, she added in the interview, “I don’t see how you could trap a man.”
“Me being in college working on a bachelor’s and needing all this money to pay for a degree, this was a no-brainer,” the woman added.
She also said many people contact her to purchase positive pregnancy tests, some even traveling from as far as Orlando, but she added that she makes it a point to never ask what the buyers do with the positive pregnancy tests.
The Jacksonville woman is not the first to try making money selling positive pregnancy tests. Some have marketed the tests as a way to manipulate a boyfriend or family members into giving women money to pay for an abortion.
Legal experts say the practice could be considered fraud.
Manipulation and coercion are common problems linked to pregnancy and abortion, especially between partners. Women may manipulate men into giving them money for an abortion when the are not actually pregnant, and men sometimes coerce women into aborting their unborn babies when they are.
