Babies by Mistake

Estimates have it, about 37 % of all human children in the USA, and 30 % in Brazil, come to be by mistake. Most are wanted and loved, of course, but I am still surprised by the numbers. Being involved in a family where we get pups, I know pups are very rarely made by mistake. Indeed, none of mine were. Are humans that much worse on planning their own offspring than the offspring of us, their four legged companions? It may seem so, but then again, it might be hard to tell. Only a small minority of humans are dog breeders, with the experience of planning the offspring that comes with it. Maybe it should be more common? Maybe the planning of human children would be better that way? Well, it is not for me to decide, but it is an interesting thought, isn't it?
