Here is your fun fact for the day: In West Virginia, more than a quarter of expectant mothers are ciggarette smokers, a number that is almost three times higher than the national average. But they’ve got good reason not to quit, because, as many claim, smoking while pregnant makes giving birth “easier.” I am sure that this theory is based on sound evidence. There is no way that, perhaps, these women just don’t feel as if they can handle quitting, with all the stress they are already under with their pregnancy, right? Pregnancy does instigate a perfect storm of raging hormones and physical pain, but that doesn’t excuse introducing extremely harmful toxins and poisins into your baby’s developing system. Because, unless you have some serious mental handicap, you should have had the sense to use some sort of protection when you engaged in that blissful act of physical passion, if you didn’t want the responsibility of carrying a life inside you. If said sense, for whatever reason, was not utilized, then you just have to grow the fuck up, I guess, and give up some things you may not really want to. Such is life. Let me digress here for a moment, and add that half the people that procreate shouldn’t, for a variety of reasons. Ever seen the Mike Judge film Idiocracy? That’s where we are headed, people. Dumbasses, like women who smoke while pregnant, breeding what will surely be more dumbasses. In surmation, I have two final words for the pregnant smokers in West Virginia, as well as all others across the globe: FUCK YOU.
