Would you ever sell your positive pregnancy test on Craigslist? The latest (and weirdest?) trend to hit the internet has moms-to-be auctioning off their positive pregnancy tests online for about $25.

While the reasons for doing so are still a little blurry, some ads suggest that potential buyers use the positive tests to get their longtime boyfriends to propose, while others encourage their buyers to use the tests to prank their parents. Horrifyingly enough, one test even says that the positive test for sale could be used to “ask for abortion money” and then use the cash to “go on vacation.”

A woman in Florida put her positive up for sale with the following ad: “I will provide you with 1(one) positive pregnancy test with NO QUESTIONS ASKED. Taken same day. It isn’t my business what you choose to use it for!”

In Toeldo, OH, a woman writes: “I will no [sic] take any responsibility for the test after it has been sold nor will I assume any obligations for the test after it has been sold,” the Toledo woman writes. “What you do with the test is your business. I do reserve the right no [sic] deny any requests.” She’s selling her positive for $10 plus the cost of the test.

Where else have the ads appeared? Chicago and Manhattan as well as Houston, just to name a few — and though many of the ads have been flagged for removal, new listings continue to pop up.

Here’s how some sellers are advertising their positive tests:
