I was at the zoo yesterday and saw a mentally disabled woman

who was nine months pregnant.

I have to ask, how the hell did this happen?

  • Ok, then I can see how you might have thought something like that, it's not the norm to see a person like that in a relationship having children and all.

  • Depends on how disabled she is, maybe she functions pretty highly and has a boyfriend.

  • Miracles happen to those who deserve it. Why is it any of your concern? You should just be happy for her.

  • you're right, there must be circumstances i don't know about. i automatically assumed it was rape.

  • I guess you have never seen the movie "The Other Sister". I have witnessed quite a few moms who have a mental disability be better moms than some of the so called "normal" moms.

  • "you're right, there must be circumstances i don't know about. i automatically assumed it was rape. "

    Why? Because she was disabled mentally you think no one could love her? Your heartless.

  • What do you mean by disabled? I'm curious because it seems strange that your first thought would be that she was raped.

  • What do you mean ":You didn't know how this happened?" The same way you or anyone else would get pregnant.

    1, are you positive she was pregnant? I have seen my share of women who looked pretty pregnant, only to find out they were not. If you are sure, how do you know? Did you ask someone she was with?
