(Slate)   Dear Prudie - My 16-year-old got knocked up at a house party. The baby's grandparents are broke, and the bastards who threw the party won't give me any money for pain and compensation. Can I hire a lawyer to sue them?   (slate.com) divider line 348

Did you forget how to get to the abortion clinic? That's what I'd say to that question if it were real.
 
2013-10-08 12:29:53 PM
You can.

It's probably not worth the legal fees though.

They should hire a lawyer to sue themselves for not showing their daughter how to use a condom prior to her turning 16 and getting knocked up.
 
2013-10-08 12:31:04 PM
It's time to show your daughter how mature parents face tough situations.

Yeah, that's not gonna happen.
 
2013-10-08 12:31:12 PM
It's not the house owners fault that your daughter is a slut, dude.

This sounds like a pretty piss poor ANONDIT
 
2013-10-08 12:31:44 PM
I just feel bad for the kid.  Having those two as parents and that guy as one of your grandparents is not a good start to life.
 
2013-10-08 12:32:07 PM
You can sue poor people, but why would you waste your money?

In the USA?

My favorite is the self entitled coont who thinks every moment of her best friends life should revolve around her husband's (remissed!) cancer.

"She doesn't even remember all his appointment dates! And dares to ask questions! That biatch!!1!"

Dad, your daughter is a whore and you have no one to blame but yourself.  Hire a lawyer?  Really?


/Not that being a whore is a bad thing... At least you know she is popular with at least one segment of her high school..

Proper parents would have had a bowl of condoms in every room. So yes, they should help out. Maybe buy the breast pump.

Q. Pre-Nup:My fiancée and I are both widows. Her husband left her a trust in excess of $3 million. She insists on a prenuptial agreement to safeguard her assets. While I agree on the importance of said contracts, I also believe it cheapens wedding vows.

Now I ain't saying he's a gold-digger...
 
2013-10-08 12:38:43 PM
If I were the homeowner, I'd agree to help by farking the baby right out of that hot high school whore.
 
2013-10-08 12:38:44 PM
Sounds more to me like your daughter should be suing you for parenting-fail.
 
2013-10-08 12:38:57 PM
They need to admit their share of this burden, as it was their booze and their house party that allowed this to happen.

Yeah cause your whore daughter wouldn't have gotten drunk and farked him otherwise

Saw this same scenerio on Judge Judy. She loudly told the plaintiff to 'GROW UP AND KEEP YOUR LEGS CROSSED!" Then told the plaintiff's partents to 'LEARN SOTHNING ABOUT BEING A PARENT AND TEACH YOUR KID SOME RESPONSIBILITY!" CASE DISMISSED..but...  CASE DISMISSED!

What happened to Plan B? Did all the abortion clinics in their town/city get burned down? Ladies, listen up: THIS IS WHEN YOU SHOULD GET AN ABORTION. This situation exactly right here is case in point why abortions should be encouraged instead of demonized. Here we have two young adults MURDERING their futures over one night of MD20/20 and Taylor Swift on the radio. You're clearly irresponsible, you're clearly not mentally capable of making the decisions necessary in parenthood (hell, your own parents are still watching that ship retreat over the horizon), just get that farker vacuumed out and move on with your life.

Good call.  Even the gays have to deal with this bullshiat now.

IMO, the parent's biggest error (besides birth) was to let the 16 YO daughter attend that particular event.  WTF do you think happens at parties like that?

I would love to hear the lawyer try and reference the precedent "Slut vs Manwhore in Judge Judy's court"

How can they even prove that she conceived that night at the party? I sure she had sex with her boyfriend many times before and after that party, and the date of conception can't be pinpointed down to a specific date, just a range. The only thing this lawsuit is going to do is embarrass the daughter because her sexual history is going to be thoroughly examined in court. Then the parents are going to be screaming that they are dragging their daughter's name through the dirt.

Dear Prudie,

How is babby formed?  Can I sue Jesus?

The short answer is "yes".  You can always hire a lawyer.  Right or wrong, there is nothing they won't do.

Depending on the jurisdictions of course and whether or not you're recording it for "artistic reasons".

Not slut-shaming if it's true.

Why not sue those who are to blame?  Like themselves.

/fooled around when I was a teenager
//always had a condom.

A hit man would be cheaper.  I know a guy that will kill someone for $5000.

/For $50,000 you get to pick who.
//He usually picks the numbest person.
///I wouldn't recommend the additional investment in this case.
