They do abortions. Usually people who get abortions did not plan on getting pregnant, so if they had not gotten the abortion, they would have become parents without planning to do so. I pray I never have to explain another joke.

Planned parenthood is an organization that helps with reproductive health and stuff like that. You can get birth control and condoms there, and if need be, an abortion. However, many if not most people go there to get an abortion, because they aren't ready and the pregnancy was mistake. Therefore unplanned. My explanantion makes it sound boring, but its a kind of funny joke.

Because the facility is called Planned Parenthood, but everyone who seems to go there was not planning to get pregnant.

This does really suck and your cousin is stupid, but at the same time anyone should know that something like that on facebook is likely to be misconstrued by at least one idiot, and one idiot is all it takes, so be a little more sensible with your facebook statuses in the future, and you do deserve it to an extent.

If you can't tell by the comments your joke flopped. Anyway, next time you go posting a joke like that, perhaps put an explanation with it?

It's not like she was doing stand-up. It's a facebook status. Lots of people use their status' as forums for random mildly amusing thoughts.

How is her comment "hating on planned parenthood"? She never said she had a problem with it - just that most people who go there for abortions didn't plan well...

#44 has it right. She probably just thought the name was ironic. I actually do, as well. I mean, c'mon, who uses Planned Parenthood often? Those that have UNplanned pregnancies. But I am all for what they do, just the name is funny.

#38: Several things: "She went out of her way..." How is putting a status message on facebook, a private site, "out of the way"? It takes a couple seconds. "...to slam a health care organization" Aaaand HOW, again, does a three second facebook post qualify as a hate message? I'm totally with 12, 14, 32, 42, 44, and 47. Like them, I understood the joke to mean that "PLANNED parenthood" is actually a pretty ironic name, because many of its patrons are peop

Actually alot of people Write that they are pregnaut or engaged on thier facbooks! It's easier then calling everyone you know to tell them. I only call close people to tell them news like this, but I would tell everyone that I was pregnaut on my facebook. So I can see how the cousin could have made that mistake. Who actually thinks about different organizations on a daily basis? Most statuses I see on facebook have to do with how the person is or what they are doing.

But I do think that her cousin should have called the op before calling the rest of the family and the ops husband tho...

Also: 1) That's a sick way to announce you're pregnaNt 2) If OP had been cheating on her husband in Iraq, why would she announce the pregnancy to everyone? 3) If she was planning on using Planned Parenthood's services, why would she go telling the world? People have random thoughts ALL THE TIME.
