H

Hail Mary

  • when a man gets a woman pregnant that he is not married to but does not want her to have the baby for fear of paying child support for 18 years. He also does not want to get married to her. So he does a Hail Mary - tell the woman he loves her and convince her that having an abortion will be the best thing for their relationship. Once the abortion is done, then the guy is free to dump her without fear of owing child support.
    I didn't want her to have the baby so I did a Hail Mary.
