On Thursday, a woman gave birth to a baby while waiting for the yellow line at DC’s L’Enfant plaza, perhaps the only place on the planet less sanitary than a manger. It’s a L’Enfant infant. A L’infant. Terrific. So if you’re looking to give birth in a Metro station, what’s your best option?

1.) Medical Center. Sounds hospital-y.

2.) Foggy Bottom GWU. They saved Reagan.

3.) Stadium-Armory. There are helicopters right outside.

4.) Cleveland Park. It’s right by Vace, that has to count for something.

5.) Capitol South. You’ll never give birth in This Town again.

6.) Union Station. It’s near the Department of Labor. Get it? Labor. Okay.

7.) Strathmore. Music is supposed to be good for a baby, right? We read that once.

45.) Dunn Loring. Is this even a real place?

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and billionaire owners wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2021 demands.
