In a disturbing new trend, pregnant women across the country are listing positive pregnancy tests for sale on Craigslist.
According to ABC News, women have been selling the used tests for about $25 each.
Some of the ads suggest using the test to get your boyfriend to marry you. Others suggest using it as a prank. One ad went so far as to suggest using the positive results to ask for money for an abortion and then taking a vacation.
Some women are selling their tests with "no questions asked."
One ad said, “I will provide you with 1(one) positive pregnancy test with NO QUESTIONS ASKED. Taken same day,” writes one woman from Florida. “It isn’t my business what you choose to use it for!”
The ads have been seen across the country, including Arizona. Some have been flagged for removal by Craigslist, but some newer ads have not.
