Kentucky Fried Abortions

I forgot to write about this yesterday, but it was Charlie's birthday and I went with a friend to KFC for lunch. We walk in with children and as we're coming through the doors, two of the girls are discussing abortions and if the one girl can get one because she thinks she might be too far along and the other girl tells her totally confident as if she has experience with things of this sort that she has up to 20 weeks. Really? We go in for chicken with our kids and you're talking about getting rid of an unwanted pregnancy? How about using birth control so it doesn't get to that state? We giggled at the fact it was serious and the girls didn't want any of their coworkers to know cos they were talking about it in english instead of how most people who are of a Hispanic ethnicity at fast food places discuss things to each other in Spanish. It's like they didn't want the other guys to know what was going on. I wonder if the baby belongs to one of the guys working there? Ooh! Oh and then we wanted to do that free coupon thing on Oprah but they weren't doing them because the girl working there was telling another customer that Oprah bought all the chicken like she's bff's with Oprah or something. Ahhh. Good times. I almost feel like writing a Dear KFC letter on the girls talking about abortions while at work thing because it was pretty awkward. We'll see...

That's ridiculous. I'd be pretty pissed, actually- like, take my business elsewhere. Especially if they were stupid enough to wait until 20 WEEKS! I try not to judge those who get abortions if they don't bleieve the same as me (that a fetus is a life), take the decision extremely seriously, and get it done as soon as freakin possible (though the whole thing still makes me sad).
